I think at this point we are missing only FF 2.0.0.16 and Thunderbird. .

Please remember that we need the language packs for those before we can post them.  Otherwise we break things for all the non-English speaking folks.  I thought exeterdad had a script to build those en masse but I can't find it anywhere.

rbistolfi and I already did that script.   Unfortunately, things are usually nicer in your imagination than reality, and many packages need extra tweaking to package them for VL.  We could do a kind of db for tweaks and automate it when we've done them once.

Yeah, figures. I'm not sure if a db for tweaks would work either....just too many variables that can change.

That includes the language packs?  Cool!  I don't know when I'll get a chance to look at it.  I know vector mentioned that he'd be building them but if he can't I'll try to get around to it.

I would have mentioned so earlier, but I was incognito in fear of hot tongs  :D
