No harm in asking, or is there? I e-mailed them this:



I've just read this on your website:
Will SoftMaker be involved with the Thunderbird project?

Yes. Thunderbird is a great collaborative effort, and SoftMaker wants to 
be part of the Thunderbird development community. To this end, we are 
assigning an experienced developer to work full-time on the Thunderbird 
code and add valuable enhancements.

SoftMaker's goal is to build Thunderbird into the best-performing 
competition to Microsoft Outlook. In doing so, SoftMaker puts a high 
premium on good cooperation with the volunteer team working on Thunderbird.

Perhaps your developer can introduce himself/herself to the Thunderbird 
team at one of the bi-weekly meetings or via the planning mailing list. 

Kind regards,
Jorg K.
