I'll probably leave that for now...

So, I'm almost at the end of the tunnel, though one very big thing is
still to be done: the rebranding... which also means a huge
s/seamonkey/iceape/ in the debian directory, which may or may not give
me surprises...

I'll probably upload the seamonkey packages once the're done, so that you
can test them and give some feedback if necessary, and will start the
huge s/seamonkey/iceape/ thing then.

Stay tuned.
