Thunderbird backend project: finished, call for testing

Hi all,
  For those who are not following the planet-beagle blog, Pierre has
finished the Thunderbird backend (one of the 2007 Google Summer of
Code projects). It can index Thunderbird emails and rss feeds. It was
a complete rewrite and totally different from the earlier thunderbird
backend which had to be disabled due to memory issues. I hear gossips
that this one runs extremely smooth with no unusual memory issues. Of
course, more testing with complicated setups and a large number of
emails will verify the claim.

  The code has been checked into the svn trunk. If you are willing to
test, 'svn checkout' and
follow the build instructions from The thunderbird backend
consists of a traditional beagle backend and a Thunderbird-2.0.0.x
extension. You will need the Thunderbird development files (usually
called [mozilla-]thunderbird-dev in most distributions) to build the
extension. If these files are present, the build system will
automatically enable the backend.

  Read for more details on the
making of the backend and its internal details. Send comments/bug
reports to the bugzilla/here.

Thanks in advance for testing :) and thanks Pierre for the backend.
