+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #496355 +++
For a good period of time leading up to this release, the "hoshi" box doing the 1.8 branch Linux builds and NATing the Windows machine was having problems due to a file system problem, which I fixed this afternoon Central European time.
Now that it should be up again, I started the process with tagging.
Tagging process started at 2009-08-22 11:48 PDT using the following commands:
cvs -d :ext:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot checkout -r GECKO181_20090812_RELBRANCH -D "2009-08-22 20:48:00" mozilla/client.mk
make -f client.mk checkout MOZ_CO_PROJECT=suite
rm -rf security/nss-fips
cvs -d :ext:email@example.com:/cvsroot tag -b SEAMONKEY_1_1_18_MINIBRANCH client.mk
cvs -d :ext:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot commit -r SEAMONKEY_1_1_18_MINIBRANCH -m 'initial minibranch commit' client.mk

Version bumped to 1.1.19pre on main 1.8 branch, waiting for a successful Linux nightly cycle before starting off the 1.1.18 release build runs.
The builds are done and up at http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/seamonkey/nightly/candidates-1.1.18/ now - the funny thing is that the first green build hoshi did in weeks is the release :)
Now that we have a patch for bug 512187, I landed it on the relbranch, moved the SEAMONKEY_1_1_18_RELEASE tag on that file and restarted Windows builds.
I think I won't renew the source tarballs for this as those using the tarballs are usually not using the Windows installer.
Testing seems enough and no problems reported since I posted the renewed Windows builds. Therefore, I pushed the files to public FTP now, official release should follow in a few hours.
Website changes pushed online, we can consider this done.
