To decide whether the current Mozilla trademark guidelines are acceptable from the Fedora perspective and to the solve the problem by discussing it with Mozilla to grant us more flexibility (Point of contact: Luis Villa) or rebrand the Mozilla packages (Firefox and Thunderbird)
Thunderbird is suffering from a crash for several weeks (not everyone is facing the issue) and unless upstream accepts the patch, we cannot push an update without rebranding the thunderbird package
Thunderbird has other issues as outlined in the following and followups to it
FESCo can either decide that the value of Mozilla branding is high and discuss it with Mozilla and get Fedora (and other distributions) more flexibility to patch issues (such as the crash and bundling of libraries) without losing the branding or decide that the the trademark guidelines are restrictive and rebrand it (following Debian). I am proposing that FESCo discuss and decide on the right solution to the current problem and the policy about such matters in general.
