        class="author-g-jn6ep9q8e3hmm0bk">It's been a while since we had
        a testing event. Some of it was probably my fault as I needed to
        adjust myself to the new release process we adopted since
        Thunderbird 5.0. Since then I've been lonely testing releases
        and new features as they came out.</span></div>
    <div class="" id="magicdomid41"><span
        class="author-g-jn6ep9q8e3hmm0bk">It's time to spend a good
        amount of time testing Thunderbird more thoroughly. We will use
        litmus as our main testing tool. In litmus you will find groups
        of test (eg one for address book, one for imap, one for news).
        Each group is made of one or more tests that needs to be run. As
        I want to distribute the workload and not only have a few areas
        tested, I would like you to sign up and tell me that you want to
