We recently added the Debian Icedove mail client to the [libre] repo
(actually "icedove-libre"), and encourage Thunderbird users to switch.
For a long time our primary mail was Thunderbird, but a libre version
with free addons eliminating non-free addons, but thunderbird has a
issue; this program has non-free trademark licensing.

Debian Icedove exists for two purposes; because of the trademark issues,
and in order to meet Debian quality standards, but this program is not
free because contains non-free addons and non-free searchplugins.

So, Márcio Silva (coadde) and André Silva (emulatorman) began creating a
libre version of Icedove without non-free addons and non-free
searchplugins including the advantage of free trademark provided by Icedove.

Since today, Parabola GNU/Linux-libre has Icedove-Libre with Language
Packs included on [libre] repo.

Enjoy the Freedom!
