Description Christopher Aillon 2007-11-14 11:45:37 EST
Description of problem:
Need to rebase Thunderbird as part of the desktop application refresh.  This is
probably to Thunderbird 2.x since it seems unlikely that 3.x will be out.
Comment 1 RHEL Product and Program Management 2007-11-14 11:54:24 EST

Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release.  Product Management has requested
further review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential
inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Update release for currently deployed
products.  This request is not yet committed for inclusion in an Update
release.
