fwiw, i agree with jmm that encouraging users to upgrade to stable is the best outcome here. The question is, what are we doing to the folks who (for whatever reason) can't make that switch.

And i don't think we're talking about "minimal testing", there has been a reasonable amount of testing. I think we ought to consider this specific case, rather than trying to make a systematized rule. > EOLing enigmail seems the only sensible option by far. the main issue with EOLing enigmail is that users will (instead of upgrading to stable) typically just use the version from addons.mozilla.org, which has both non-DFSG-free issues and significantly scary behavior (downloading and silently executing binaries from the web on the user's behalf). If we're EOLing thunderbird on jessie entirely, that'd be one thing (and i'd be ok with it). But EOLing enigmail on its own sounds like a route to trouble for enigmail users on jessie. --dkg
