What's abut Spicebird?

Hello,

Spicebird is a "free and open source collaboration suite", pim, rss-reader and mailclient, based on thunderbird 1.

A portable version exists from Caschy, but it's not an official version.

What do you think about this project? It's possible to take it to the list of apps making portable?

Regards,

Teuchtlurm

Wow

This looks pretty awesome.

I'm gonna try it out a bit more.

Edit: Wow, I really like this. I may drop some others and work on this.

Yea for Sure

But this is a great time to get a -profile switch added in, unless it already supports it which I wouldn't be surprised since it's built off of Thunderbird.

Nice, Packaged, Asking Permission

A nice app. And a good combination of Thunderbird, Lightning and some additional features.

I've completed a test version and dropped a note including it to Synovel asking permission to release it and use their trademarks. I'll post the test version once we have approval from them.

Alright!

I thought this would make for an easy one for you having already done the Mozilla apps.

Yeah

Yeah, it's a relatively quick one. I didn't thoroughly test it, but it's basically one of the newer betas of Thunderbird (so we have to handle the crash data as in FF3 betas) combined with Lightning (which already works with Thunderbird Portable). So it was a lot of find and replace, add in the crash report handling code from FF3B2 and then alter the branding, etc. It's using the Development Test splash because it's relatively untested. I sent it off to them to try, so hopefully we'll hear back by tomorrow and I can post it for everyone to play with.

So true

the funny thing is, he is so eager to use his newly acquired power, he is actually modifying his own posts. Hahaha Wink

Yeah

I noticed they had the plugin panel in the addons window. Can't wait to test, because I love tango. Smile

*claps*

I'm glad you fixed the link Wink

And just out of curiosity, did anyone ever test one of Cashy's Apps? He says they are portable but to what extent?

May have to remove that link

I'm thinking we may have to remove that link (caschy). He's using Mozilla's trademarks without permission. As well as the Spicebird trademarks.

Caschys Apps

I tested Caschys version of portable thunderbird long time ago, no problems with portability.

Mozilla

But I doubt you have permission from Mozilla. Nor do you have permission from me (since I can't give it to you for Mozilla's apps anyway... it's a very specific license and does not extend to 3rd parties).

Would he need also

Would he need also permission from Mozilla for apps based on Mozilla apps?

Don't Think So

I don't think he would, as it doesn't use any of Mozilla's trademarks, just code. However I can't be too sure on that one.

Firefox, Thunderbird, Sunbird

I meant for Firefox, Thunderbird and Sunbird. He's repackaged all of them into his own versions with all the trademarks intact (which isn't permitted under the trademark licensing guidelines).
