Replacing thunderbird with icedove
afaict there are currently no hints for getting rid of thunderbird and
letting icedove in instead.
icedove has one rc-bug currently (#395095), it contains non-free rfc
documents. However this bug applies to both thunderbird and icedove,
as their source tarballs are identical:
ametzler@merkel:$ md5sum /org/ftp.root/debian/pool/main/i/icedove/icedove_188.8.131.52.orig.tar.gz /org/ftp.root/debian/pool/main/t/thunderbird/thunderbird_184.108.40.206.orig.tar.gz
I am going to submit a bug against ftp.d.o to get rid of thunderbird in sid, too.
