Actually, only the trunk has the relicensing complete, and the trunk is
Firefox 3. Firefox 2 will still be in the same state as previous
releases, but we know most of its code is available in upstream cvs in a
really triple licensed form.

I'm hoping to have Firefox 2.0beta1 uploadable to experimental somewhat soon.
Firefox 2.0 final itself is supposed to be released in august (but more
likley in september)
It might not be impossible to have it in etch (and would be preferable,
since upstream will stop support of Firefox 2 6 months after release
of Firefox 3, which is itself due Q1 2007).
