Summary0000131: [RFE] Enable openGPG support in thunderbird
DescriptionLong story short : opengpg support is there by default in upstream thunderbird, but disabled by Red Hat for RHEL (see

We (CentOS Side) decided to rebuild it with a specific patch that in fact revert the rhel patch, and so provide a thunderbird package that can be use for openpgp.
The simple patch can be seen in the centosplus branch :

This is a RFE to consider either rebuilding thunderbird with that feature, or just do like for centos : rebuild in/for another repository

Reason is simple : we saw people (including RHEL users) using that pkg as they needed gpg support in thunderbird, and as CentOS 8 will disappear end of this year (and so centosplus repository) people switching to another compatible rebuild will start searching for same level of compatibility
