I just noticed that by moving the nonprism edition to to testing it causes pacman to update to libre edition. I additionally noticed that p_roxy settings are wiped and setting a proxy does not work with this version_: _icedove 1:45.4.0.deb1-1_ As it is a possible security vulnerability to those using a proxy, users should be advised of this issue... We also still never determined by consensus how to deal with this issue. I think that /your-privacy/ package should encourage users to use icedove-hardened or nonprism editions. Consensus still needed!
