We started major updates from Thunderbird 2 last June, and we now have somewhere around 10-15% of our ADUs left on 2.0.x. Given that 2.0.x has known security issues and we have also now obsoleted 3.0.x, I think we should remove the 2.0.x page from our website and stop promoting it.

The current bouncer links will probably work for a while at least, i.e.

http://download.mozilla.org/?product=thunderbird-2.0.0.24&os=win&lang=en-US
http://download.mozilla.org/?product=thunderbird-2.0.0.24&os=osx&lang=en-US
http://download.mozilla.org/?product=thunderbird-2.0.0.24&os=linux&lang=en-US

(obviously replace en-US as appropriate)

and if they stop working, then it is always available via ftp:

ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/thunderbird/releases/2.0.0.24/

(please use the ftp link as a last resort, as ftp doesn't go via the mirrors).
This patch removes the links to the all-older-2.0.html page. Note there's a ko page which is in there as well which seems pretty broken. We should probably deal with that in a separate bug though.

Files also to be removed are (not included in patch as svn makes that hard):

en-US/thunderbird/all-older-2.0.html
includes/thunderbird20BuildDetails.php
includes/thunderbird20Details.class.php
