Built and uploaded 60.7.0-1~deb9u1.0tails1 for stable. I could also do it for feature/buster but I’m unassigning myself for the case that someone else wants to do it before I get to it.

Renamed the branch + APT overlay so that Jenkins runs the Thunderbird tests, copied the packages from the now obsolete APT overlay to the new one. I think it’s fine to first check that the test suite passes on Stretch, review & merge, and keep this ticket open for Buster (worst case, we’ll handle it during our next Buster sprint :)

Jenkins is happy ;) All Thunderbird tests passes!
Only a new overlay is added, so no code to review. Passes

intrigeri: I can't review the packages on incoming.deb.tails.boum.org@, as my key is not added there. Like it is written at: https://tails.boum.org/contribute/merge_policy/review/

deassign me, as I can’t do a fully review.

@hefee, I’ve pushed commit:7dfe71a3a65b0dab0275ae81cf57c206e5a8e78e to make this doc support your current situation.

Note that 60.7.1 is out to fix high prio security issues in the iCal support. I think it’s probably too low profile a feature in the context of Tails to bother rebasing+building+uploading again but if someone wants to do it, fine but please first check that we are affected though (i.e. untrusted iCal can be imported in our Thunderbird; could be that this feature does not work out of the box in Tails anyway — missing proxy settings, Torbirdy, or something — in which case this would not count as FT work).

Uploaded, let’s see what Jenkins thinks.

  • Status changed from In Progress to Resolved

New packages are installed as expected. Will reopen if we see test suite failures.
