Re: packaging thunderbird and firefox extensions as RPM in Fedora

this is a packaging related question, but fedora-devel in this case is probably the better place than fedora-packaging for now (when it comes to actual implemetaion details fedora-packaging probably is better).

Did anybody in recent times look into packaging thunderbird or firefox extensions as RPMS in fedora? One of my desktops is a x86_64 machine and getting a proper enigmail for it sometimes is annoying (ยน). Caillion iirc in the past once said packaging extensions would be possible with future versions of thunderbird and firefox. Are thunderbird and firefox 2.0 (both in rawhide these days) those future versions or do we have to wait until 3.0 for proper support? Or are there any workarounds to somehow make it work now?

3.0. There's no maintainable way to make it work now without querying RPM in %post and requiring triggers.

Remi provides a thunderbird package with included enigmail

You really shouldn't tell me these things. Has Remi gotten approval to ship Thunderbird with this extension? If not, he probably needs to stop shipping the branding or the extension.
