I've read through the green forum articles (I'm myself German and a
vivid reader of heise news), and the bottom line of the posts is:
Thunderbird is old, has shortcomings, but it's nonetheless the best we
got. Mozilla wants to get rid of TB, the TB community is doing the best
they can to keep the ship above water. Good summary?
So, the problem is deeper than marketing. We need to free ourselves from
Mozilla dependency and revigorate, revitalize the development. Make a
fresh start. That's exactly what I want to do, and why I wanted to be on
the council. Everybody, please help us with that. We need you and your
energy and enthusiasm, and your work and active help.
