quality themes exist.

I'm looking to get together a collection of featured Personas/Themes [1] 
for Thunderbird. These will appear in the Add-ons Manager tab under the 
Get Add-ons pane.

I'm going to mainly talk about Personas, as that is what they are 
currently called, but they will be renamed as Themes 
at some stage in the future. If you want even more clarification, I'm 
specifically looking for Lightweight themes.

Adding the list of featured Personas will give us an additional link

At this stage, I'm looking for a generic set that could be featured all

final collection - I'll see how many entries we get.

You can view all personas at 

Currently from within Thunderbird, you can go to Tools -> Add-ons -> Get 
Add-ons. Then next to "Up & Coming" select "See all" to get you a tab 
with the add-ons site. Then you can select "Personas" from underneath 
the "Add-ons" title at the top of the page.
