Dear localizers

A2 is undergoing testing and 12 locale builds are available, listed at
http://wiki.mozilla.org/Thunderbird3/TestResults/Alpha2/L10N

If you are able to run smoketests or BFT tests, as listed below, it
would be appreciated. And offer your feedback.

Thanks

Hello!

We now have builds to test - the QA step required before releasing a2 to
the public. We have roughly 2 days to complete testing, so we need all
hands. For those of you who enthusiastically volunteered we hope you
are able to participate.

The QA process and details, and contact information are listed at
http://wiki.mozilla.org/QA/Thunderbird3/TestResults/Alpha2

Builds are available at
http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/thunderbird/nightly/3.0a2-candidates/build1/

The tests we need done are listed below. BFT (Basic Functionality
Tests) are the most important tests - using litmus. If you do not have
time to do BFT tests we hope that you will be able to either smoketest
(shorter test set), try a build for a specific locale (verify build is
usable), or do a spot check. All of these test are listed after the BFT
description below.

Thanks very much in advance for your assistance.


BFTs
----

BFTs are split into test groups. To best use and reduce your testing
time we have labeled the test groups below with either MZ, AL, star or
left it blank:
* "*" priority items - not everyone has the resources to test
it - so if you have access the resource, please do these first and
run that test group
* "Blank" indicates items we hope everyone will test
* AL and MZ - if your last name is within that range, A-to-L or
M-to-Z, please run that test group

When you are done, or if you find yourself running out of time, you can
help by selecting subgroups that show the least amount of testing
coverage on the "Select Subgroup" list.

To do BFTs
1. go to https://litmus.mozilla.org/run_tests.cgi?test_run_id=29
2. login
3. set your build, platform, os, locale, click "submit configuration"

And you're off and running

The wiki page says that it (Italian) is one of the locales available, in
the build directory I don't see Italian builds while there are lt
(Lituanian) builds.

Looks like a typo in copying the list of locales. It should be lt and
not it, so I've updated the wiki.
