the latest version of thunderbird packaged for Arch Linux comes with Lightning included, following upstream. Could you kindly package the corresponding translations as well?

I'm not sure whether this concerns all localization packages.

Additional info:
* package version(s) 45.0-1
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
This task depends upon

I'm backing up this proposition as en-US localization is the only one provided for lightning in the thunderbird package.
So, for now, we have to uninstall lightning and reinstall it after every thunderbird update.
The difference I found between the version packed and the one I got from mozilla is in the chrome.manifest where every locale are declared in the one from mozilla.

Good luck about it, and thanks for your job by the way.

Are those available as separate XPIs? Or is there one lightning extension for every locale? Or is there a way to get the build to produce an omni-localized extension?

Right now we build the binaries ourselves but grab prebuilt localizations. TBH I don't know how Mozilla builds these. Can you build them out of the regular sources? This also concerns Firefox. I'd love to be able to build binaries and localizations from a single PKGBUILD.

There is only one xpi with all locale included :
I tried to dig in the sources of thunderbird, but it seems that locale aren't shipped in the 'only Thunderbird' sources. It has to come from the mercurial repository with all the 'mach' build.
Didn't tried this because of the large Go needed. Maybe the easiest way would be to ship the already packaged XPI ? Or to exclude lightning from the build ?

Mozilla does not provide XPIs with localized Lightning. Building localizations ourselves is far too difficult. Hence, I dropped Lightning again.
