"These pages cover the Sunbird project and its goals, where one can download Sunbird and what its known issues are and how to build it.

"Please bear one thing in mind when referring to Sunbird: 'Sunbird' is just a project name at the moment and the name may change in the future. At the moment we do not have the resources to trademark the name and make it official, so that is mainly a legal thing. So whenever you talk or write about Sunbird please refer to it just as 'Sunbird' or the 'Sunbird Project'."

The goal of creating Firefox, Thunderbird and Sunbird was to have separate components, wasn't it? I don't see why an email client should have a calendar built in. I suspect very few people keep their (paper) calendars by the front door (or wherever they receive their letters). If you want a calendar built into your email client, use Thunderbird's calendar; personally, I'd rather keep them separate. Eventually, all of the standalone Mozilla apps will be more integrated (as is beginning to happen with Firefox's mail UI) - hopefully there'll then be less of a distinction between extensions and full-blown applications.
