I said that "Firebird/Thunderbird may be packaged together as 1.5" and I think your statement answers the first poster's question. Many Mozilla users (including myself) have been confused by this whole 1.5/*bird issue and you saying that 1.5 will become Firebird/Thunderbird has never been spoken clearly to the Mozilla community at large. Yes, I'm sure many of the developers and other supporters knew this, but not all of us follow the project so closely.

Current, Firebird/Thunderbird are developed separately from the main Mozilla trunc as Phoenix, etc. (with the projects still contributing to each other yet still separate). It would be nice to know with an announcement or something that 1.5 will become Firebird/Thunderbird (or vice versa).
