Note that thunderbird-enigmail in rpmfusion-free-updates-testing works
also. Updates-testing from Fedora and
rpmfusion-{non,}free-updates-testing are in fact meant to be used
together all the time to avoid problems like this (note that mirror- and
push-lags sometimes create small not-fully-in-sync-problems which are
not really avoidable :-/ ).
