It would be really easier to maintain this icedove stuff next to our
tbird bits in bzr. as we can just merge back/forward and so on ... we
can even use bzr in alioth if folks dont like launchpad - though i
dont really see a reason not to do that.

so ... can you send whoever worked on that to me ;)

We intentionally didnt put that stuff in /usr/share as its pretty
senseless to do that if the non-binary stuff isn't shipped in a arch
all package - which also causes more maintenance pain than its worth
it imo.

Anyway, thanks for your work. I will look closer at that git thing
after ubuntu jaunty is out.
