Re: Thunderbird in Debian testing

Thunderbird 1:78.3.1-2 accepted in unstable at 30/09/2020, 21 days passed since then, so i think it would be enough time to consider it ready for testing.

Anyway, thanks for your time.

Stable updates are handled by the security team and are made as
necessary.  Testing doesn't work that way.  Changes to testing arrive
only after spending some time in unstable.  See

Tracker indicates that thuderbird will propagate to testing in the next
couple of days based on a manual hint by the release team:

That repository is empty and is typically not used at all except
during a freeze when automatic propagation from unstable is disabled.
