Thunderbird - Missing Calendar

Before starting, I am just looking for additional information or leads
to fix this. Chiefly a time line of release for _64.
I recently upgraded to lucid on an Acer Aspire 7520 w/ an athalon x 2_64
processor. During the recovery portion of the build; where I install my
specific software and relink directories, I replaced Evolution w.
Thunderbird as usual
sudo apt-get purge evolution
sudo apt-get install thunderbird lightning-extention
ln -s [protected partition] .thunderbird/[replace.default]
vi .thunderbird/profile.ini # necessary edit, otherwise you
get a "thunderbird already running" error
What I have found on my own, thus far, is that thunderbird 3 doesn't
work with lightening .9, which is what is currently in the lucid
froller at metis:~$ sudo apt-cache show thunderbird
froller at metis:~$ sudo apt-cache show lightning-extension
[sudo] password for froller:
Lighning 1.0 beta1 from here
does work with tb3, according to various comments around the web.
What I would like to know is:
1. Will Lightning 1.0 be added to the Ubuntu repositories by 29 April?
In particular, for _64 architecture?
2. Is there a Lightning 1.0_64 beta out there? # Still searching
myself, just would like extra eyes.
If the answer to 1. is no then I suggest you copy your
.mozilla-thunderbird/[your_mail_directory].default someplace safe
berfore upgrading to Lucid. There are work arounds; chiefly installing
tb 2 + lightning .9
If I am incorrect, please point me in the right direction so that I may
get my calendars back on Lucid. Other wise hope this helps others
#plus others, this link seemed to summarize my searches best.
