The triage and release team that currently works on Firefox and
Thunderbird 2.0.0.x releases will continue to triage requests for
Thunderbird 2.0.0.x and maintain its releases until six months after
the release of Thunderbird 3.
Note that this will mean that browser-specific security and stability
bugs will likely be ignored/minused. We'll only be considering bugs
that affect Thunderbird 2.0.0.x.
That being said, I know Gecko 1.8.0 is still maintained by Linux
distros and we could hand over most of the branch to willing and
capable parties as we did in that case.
