Quick and dirty test: I copied <email address hidden> from the upstream official build (thunderbird-60.8.0.tar.bz2) to /usr/lib/thunderbird/distribution/extensions/, and this was enough for thunderbird to pick it up and successfully use it.

And unlike other extensions (calendar, see bug #545778), this xpi contains localizations for all available languages.
