I'm one of the maintainers of the SeaMonkey package for openSUSE. Unfortunately, in SeaMonkey 2.53.6 the build system changed in a way that broke the scripts used by many packagers (not just for openSUSE but other distributions as well). I spent a long time trying to get things to work again back in January but was unsuccessful; I also reached out to the other package maintainer but received no response.
In February I was contacted by the SeaMonkey packager for Fedora, who seems to have figured out how to get his own RPMs to build again, and shared some advice and a new Makefile. Unfortunately, due to real life commitments I haven't yet been able to look into these yet. I expect I'll be able to do this starting in mid-April.
SeaMonkey 184.108.40.206 packages are now building again for Tumbleweed (except for i586 builds, which weren't working anyway). I'll look at updating the packages to the current SeaMonkey 2.53.7 later this week, though this may take a while due to my having to figure out the new build system and/or adapt the new Makefile from Fedora.
