Bug #16336: Check which packages we still need to patch on Buster
Build our custom Thunderbird package for Buster
With our ongoing upstreaming efforts, it is possible that we might not need to build/ship/maintain a custom Thunderbird in the future.
To get the
feature/buster ball rolling, we're switching to the
thunderbird package from
sid temporarily; until we figure out what to do on the long run.

There seems to be some concurrency here, with hefee and I working on feature/buster and making a note about our switch back to sid's thunderbird; while anonym had already filed https://labs.riseup.net/code/issues/15788 (that I failed to spot before filing this bug report, my bad).

TL;DR: We'll need a custom TB anyway: patches are needed; and even upstreamed, they would need to be published in some ESR release anyway.
- Subject changed from Check whether a custom Thunderbird is needed for Buster to Build our custom Thunderbird package for Buster
Let's do this once we're closer to releasing 4.0~beta1, but not too close to that: we'll want our test suite to exercise the right package and spot any regression soon enough :)
- Status changed from Confirmed to In Progress
- Assignee set to anonym
- % Done changed from 0 to 40
- Affected tool set to Email Client
I am currently slowly uploading patched packages (60.6.1-1.0tails1). I thought this would completely fix Thunderbird on buster so we could get some test suite results, but we are affected by #16573 so account config is completely broken.
