Mozilla Thunderbird now officially ESR in Slackware?


The patches/ directory in the Slackware file tree has been sporting Mozilla Thunderbird 17.0.x for some time.

Does that mean that from now on Thunderbird is officially ESR in Slackware?

I thought mozilla started focusing on other projects and so they decided to let the community take care of thunderbird?

I would say no.

Right now they are apparently ESR and regular are at the same version as show on their respective download pages.
