Bug#971989: unblock: thunderbird/1:78.3.2-1

Package: release.debian.org
Severity: normal
User: release.debian.org@packages.debian.org
Usertags: unblock

Please unblock package thunderbird

The automatic migration testing for Thunderbird is containing some tests
for the packages jsunit and enigmail which currently prevents the
automatic migration of the thunderbird package to testing because the
tests are failing.

The enigmail package needs to be available in at least version 2.2 to
give a useful user experience. Thunderbird has included a version
requirement on enigmail that 2.2 is required.
This requirement can't get fulfilled currently in Debian unstable or
testing because the maintainers of the Enigmail package didn't prepared
and upoaded until now a new version.
There is s wishlist bug for updating enigmail to the most recent
version since a few weeks.


The jsunit package is now also outdated and must fail against the
current Thunderbird versions.

So far I've no feedback from the enigmail maintainers, they got involved
within the communication with the security team while the upload of
thunderbird for stable/security got prepared.

The currently also reported uninstallability for the package
webext-exteditor/2.0.4-1 is intended as this version isn't working with
Thunderbird >= 78.

So I'd like to suggest to remove (if this is possible) the auto
migration testing of enigmail and jsunit against thunderbird. At least
please allow the migration of the Thunderbird related packages into
testing. I'm condidering removal requests for enigmail and jsunit in
