Mozilla the maker of Firefox browser is determinant to keep the project email client Thunderbird until it will get some gains and works independently standing on its own foot. But from some years before Mozilla was attempting to get far from the project but the idea changed now.
According to Ars Technica reports, Phillip Kewicsh one of the technical editor at Mozilla revealed the company’s plan for Thunderbird future, He said that Mozilla foundation “continue as Thunderbird’s legal, fiscal, and cultural home,”. But condition applied here is that worker must keep a good working relationship with Mozilla foundation and also co-operate with each other.
The first priority to make it operational independent is to make enough revenue, for this the company is getting donation enough to pay workers and servers. Phillip writes that:
“Our infrastructure is moving to thunderbird.net and we’re already running some Thunderbird-only services, like the ISPDB (used for auto configuring users’ e-mail accounts), on our own,”
If Mozilla foundation and Thunderbird co-operation do not achieve the expected goal within six months than Mozilla foundation will no more “continue as Thunderbird’s legal, fiscal, and cultural home,” its seems to be acceptable from both side, now.
