Mozilla Transitioning Away from Thunderbird

The Mozilla Foundation, makers of the popular Firefox web browser, have recently announced they would like to start phasing out their Thunderbird e-mail client so they can focus more fully on their web browser. This really isn’t a new idea as Mozilla has been talking about such things for a while, but now they’ve made it official.

Ultimately, they would like to hand the project off to another group that will continue to support and maintain it. Perhaps the Apache Software Foundation would be a good fit as they do have a history of adopting and maintaining various software projects.
