This sounds a good idea,  and may reduce any confusion out there.

Hi Debian Developers and followers,

Thunderbird is back in Debian! We also renamed other related
packages to use official names, e.g. iceowl-extension ->
lightning.

For now, we need testers to catch existing issues and things we
haven't seen until now.

What happens the first time you start Thunderbird?

With the change to the official Mozilla branding the users
profile(s) will also be changing from '$HOME/.icedove' to
'$HOME/.thunderbird' so we need to migrate the profile folder. This
is done by /usr/bin/thunderbird, a wrapper script, which does the
following things during initial startup:

* Copy the contents of the old profile folder into the new folder
~/.icedove_moved_by_thunderbird_starter * Fixup Icedove related
entries to Thunderbird in ~/.thunderbird/$PROFILE/mimeTypes.rdf *
Fixup Icedove related entries to Thunderbird in
~/.config/mimeapps.list * The postinst/postrm scripts will move
existing configuration files from /etc/icedove/pref to
/etc/thunderbird/pref.

What needs to be tested? * Are the mime type associations still
correct? * Is the migration working in various Desktop
Environments? * Did we miss some files that need to be handled?

What should I prepare for testing? Please keep a backup of your old
~/.icedove folder! Also please backup the file
~/.config/mimeapps.list (if your DE is using this) before
installing the thunderbird packages. You'll find additional notes
in '/usr/share/doc/thunderbird/README.Debian'.

If you find some issue, please open a bug report. Patches of course
are welcome!

We like to say thanks to all people that are involved and helped to
do the migration!

Cheers, Carsten, Guido and Christoph
