First, thank you for all the efforts that went into the Boot Hole / shim issue.  I'm sorry for the bad PR CentOS got for it.  I do hope upstream will not have more occurrences of the like...historically, they've been very reliable, which is why it is my choice of OS.

Just a friendly reminder Thunderbird 68.10 hasn't been released for CentOS 8.

And I see RHEL has announced Thunderbird 68.11.0:   https://access.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2020:3341

I do hope the day will come where we can meet so I can thank you in person.  It would be a great pleasure buy you a beer / meal / t-shirt.

Best regards,
