I'm afraid I have no idea on how WPKG works, I never deployed
thunderbird sitewide to help you.

But DL for thunderbird doesn't require anything special in that regard.
When doing development, I also just unpack the extension in the
extension directory.

As for most extensions, it just uses preference keys to store the
configuration settings.

The *required* keys are:

mail.cloud_files.accounts.account[N].type = DL
mail.cloud_files.accounts.account[N].displayName = DL
mail.cloud_files.accounts.account[N].restURL = [URL]
mail.cloud_files.accounts.account[N].username = [username]

where [N] is the index of the first available "filelink" account
(usually 1). [URL] and [username] need to be filled correctly.

There are other keys, but they're populated automatically on the first

I assume there are ways to preconfigure settings if you already have a
sitewide install.

Hope this helps.
