Bug description:
  As Thunderbird has a different release cycle to Firefox and there is
  some overlap between releases, we're sticking with Thunderbird 31.*
  for security updates for as long as possible. We're just about to push
  Thunderbird 31.8.0 out as a security update to all releases. This is
  the last 31.* release, and so the next security update (in a few
  weeks) will be Thunderbird 38.2.0.

  However, there is some demand from users to have Thunderbird 38.1.0
  before then, so I suggest we upload this to -proposed for all releases
  and push it out through the normal SRU process.

  Note, regardless of what happens with this, the security team will
  push Thunderbird 38.2.0 to the security pockets for all releases in a
  few weeks.
