Just for the record as the one that reviewed thunderbird-enigmail for
RPM Fusion:

thunderbird-enigmail afaik would be acceptable for Fedora if it wants to
ship it; there are no legal problems I'm aware of that would prevent that.

But the review of thunderbird-enigmail for Fedora stalled due to various
reasons for a year or two iirc (bugzilla.redhat.com has some of the
details; ask remi for all of them). So RPM Fusion jumped in to provide
the package for now, to give users a proper solution for now (normally
RPM Fusion doesn't take packages that can go to Fedora, but we make
exceptions like this). But I and afaics the package maintainer and
several other RPM Fusion contributors would be very very happy if
thunderbird-enigmail could be moved to Fedora rather sooner than later.
