Hello,

Thanks for setting this up!

Is there a way to submit items? I am thinking the Modern Addressbook:

https://wiki.mozilla.org/Features/Thunderbird/Modern_Address_Book

http://mikeconley.ca/blog/2011/09/07/creating-a-new-thunderbird-address-book-the-feature-page-and-some-literature/

This is a heavily requested item, and related bug reports have been at
the NEW status for up to ten years! Just one example:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=118665

Thanks again for starting this initiative.
