[Dev] Iceweasel 57 status

sorry I'll promptly get back to you guys, I am presently on a conference
and have limited time available.

I am aware of the iceweasel issue, and there are currently two problems
that need solving:

 a) the branding patches are broken and need to be updated
 b) firefox-57 has removed support for legacy extensions, so all addon
    packages need to be verified if they still work. At least noscript
    needs to migrate to 10.x

I hope I'll get to doing that today or tomorrow.

I am not sure if we particularily need an iceweasel-esr version, that
role has typically been filled by icecat, which will probably switch to
59 soon as well, once all the issues are ironed out, but it can't hurt I
guess. But that's an issue I'd assign a lower priority to, unless
someone sais it's important to them :)
