I'm running Thunderbird on a Debian/Buster system but my profile is
stored on a Debian/Stretch server. I've been doing it this way for
years.

When I brought my systems back up yesterday, everything seems OK (in
fact noticeably faster than before - including accessing files on my
network shares). However Thunderbird is almost unusable.

When I start Thunderbird, even in safe mode, it launches OK but the
panels don't draw themselves.
That'shttps://bugs.debian.org/871629.  Remedy: upgrade thunderbird to
1:52.2.1-5 from sid or downgrade to 1:52.2.1-4.

That's not doable, it appears. The same version that is in Buster is
also in Sid
No, although packages.debian.org is outdated.

There's an earlier
version in Stretch but it depends on libhunspell v1.4 and v1.6 is
installed. Removing libhunspell has a lot of consequences.
Pardon me: aren't libhunspell-1.4-0 and libhunspell-1.6-0 coinstallable?

Cheers,

Thanks. You're right. The package is in sid and it did fix the problem.

I would have thought that they'd do a periodic automated run against the repositories to generate the packages.debian pages. Do they actually keep them updated manually?
