Given that others are already doing the work in their PPAs, I wonder if
any of them would be able to get together and volunteer to maintain
firefox-esr in Ubuntu's official archive, working alongside the existing
maintenance of non-ESR Firefox done by the desktop team?

As has already been mentioned by others this might involve some
additional work to make the two play well in the archive together.

Is there anyone who is prepared to drive this? Presumably there's no
point in considering how (and if) it might work technically unless we
have volunteers though.
