I can confirm the problem,

translations are missing in the package

would be nice to make these translations for calendar work again.

I have worked on a new PKGBUILD which downloads all Lightning translations from the Mozilla source code repository and packages them as .xpi language packs. Could you please merge it?

Unfortunately that looks like the worst of both worlds: having to clone all the l10n repositories but still downloading prebuilt langpacks. It also looks rather fragile.

I know - the underlying issue is that the Lightning resources are not included in the default language packs provided by Mozilla. They instead chose to have the build system generate multiple versions of the extension at compile time (on request), one for each language (at least on official Windows builds).

I've searched the Arch and Mozilla bug trackers in depth and I think there are two possible solutions to this:
1) ask Mozilla to bundle the Lightning translations with the Thunderbird language packs;
2) rebuild the language packs ourselves (see e.g. https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/50219#comment149601).

I think the first solution is (obviously) preferable; in case it is rejected by upstream, would the second proposal be acceptable to you?
Comment by Jan Steffens (heftig) - Sunday, 06 August 2017, 16:03 GMT
Yes; I'd rather not do it but if Mozilla can't fix the langpacks I don't see any other option.

I have requested feedback in https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1266696#c10, I'll add a comment here as soon as I've got a reply.

Problem still exists in
extra/thunderbird 60.0-3 [Installiert]
extra/thunderbird-i18n-de 60.0-2 [Installiert]

Looks like Language Pack and Main Application Package does not match. :(

Those problems around the internationalisation looks very unprofessional to us.

Edit: typo

Aalso Occours on matching version numbers.
extra/thunderbird-i18n-de 60.0-2 [Installiert]
local/thunderbird 60.0-2 [Installiert]

For those who might be interested, it's possible to create a package for your language based on this gist https://gist.github.com/progandy/ce857358c4f3b8eb09887a085e4bea30
