the above was tried out by me. The package-source says already, that it is different from
the Icedove-release for the stable version: '//http.debian.net/debian' instead of
'//mozilla.debian.net', then it is also in experimental, not in unstable.
If you try 'unstable', you have to be careful, not to pull in other unstable packages and
do some pinning. I upgraded the whole system to unstable once involuntarily, and also was
unaware of that fact for some time.
been good enough for me, since I am using Testing.
In spite of that I wanted to try out the release, but problems appeared very quickly,
upon first startup already, there appeared the 'proxy not found'-page and one had to click
on [try again], this also appeared more often during the subsequent use.
The version is basically usable, except the above issue, the other thing that did not
work for me, was the quicksearch-selector, so I rolled back the upgrade again.
The page-rendering-performance is a bit better, maybe, any other brandnew features
aren't even of any use to me.
P.S. I understand myself as a tester, so I probably cannot help out with packaging,
there is also nobody telling me, how to do it, I probably would have to read
'Nussbaum's' tutorial _and_ lots of sourcecode.
