Hello Firefox developers,

Because of two blocking issues and the need for a bit more time to evaluate
the results of their fixes/backouts, we need to push back the upcoming
merge and release dates.

We will plan for merge day to be Monday Sept. 19th, with release planned
for Tuesday Sept. 20th.

50 will continue as aurora, and 51 as nightly this week. The 50 beta cycle
was planned to be 8 weeks. We can afford to lose a week there and still aim
to ship 50 as scheduled.

Please let me know if you have feedback or any questions, by email or on
IRC on #release-drivers.
