Re: [opensuse] Change in T'Bird reply format

(And as an aside: what the heck are Mozilla doing to TB?! Why can't devs
just leave something good alone and not &^$%#@ around with it!?)

Seriously? Do you like the chromification and other paradigm changes that have
been occurring in Firefox? For the last five years at least, running its 6-8
week new release model, upstream Mozilla drivers seem driven to change for
change sake, not content to keep what works working.

Just as Mozilla Suite was divorced from the mainline product line,
after which it was renamed SeaMonkey, Thunderbird is being (has been?) too. Both
have been allowed to continue to use infrastructure, but this too
has been decreed must come to an end. In addition, components that enable SM and
TB to exist have been and continue to be eliminated from the code base,
necessitating that the divorcees either fork and maintain the deletions, or
morph the need for them into whatever continues to be available. The scramble to
adapt by the limited SM & TB development communities leaves unfortunate
consequences in its wake.

get, get wisdom." Proverbs 4:7 (New Living Translation)
