for Thunderbird there is still some work to do, currently not related to
the work of Emilio. There wasn't any attempt from my side to merge the
unstable/testing tree into the buster related one until now. First I
need to get Thunderbird into unstable and hopefully soon to testing. If
there are no big problems to fix first then we can go on to work on
Thunderbird for Buster (and Stretch). Thunderbird is again suffering a
bit from a big API change for Add-ons as you might know. And as a lot of
users are using GPG for encryption we shouldn't make the migration to
the included OpenPGP support not harder as needed.
