We'll need to update the channel prefs so they're on the release channel, and the mar channel prefs so they accept thunderbird-comm-release mars.
I've got a channel switching MAR that seems to work:
http://people.mozilla.org/~catlee/signed-switch-to-release.mar

Need to generate snippets now.
ETA?
Test snippets are up here:
http://people.mozilla.org/~catlee/TB_17.0.11esr_24.2.0.tar.gz

Needs some final sanity checking, and then I'll push to the test channels.
Pushed test snippets
To repeat here what was in email:

This is a two-step update, first users will get a "channel changing
update" to 17.0.11esr which will change their update channel from "esr"
to "release", and also adjust the updater-settings.ini file to accept
release MARs. The second update is then from 17.0.11 to 24.2.0.

To test, first change your defaults/pref/channel-prefs.js file to use
"esrtest". You should get a small update which changes your update
channel to "release". After that, adjust your channel-prefs.js file to
use "releasetest" and you should get the second update to 24.2.0.
Snippets pushed to the esr/release channels.
Looking good. Thanks.

We could have 17.0.11esr in that patcher config, for the release channel only, to offer the latest ESR build.
