Can the firefox policy files be adapted to support thunderbird version 68 ESR?

currently no resources from thunderbird developers are working on this.
even though new policy engine feature has been released in version 68.

I don't have the bandwidth to do this, but anyone from the community can feel free to do this.

As far as I know, no actual policies were implemented in TB 68, were they?

Spoken about this on irc with a thunderbird developer. Apparently your policy engine was ported into thunderbird 68. And mentioned in the release notes as a feature.
They didn't know any more info about it. Nor where the admx files. Apparent the ff admx can be used??
Is there a way to progress this feature. I couldn't find any more info on the engine or API

This should be a very straightforward thing to do based on looking at the policy code that is in Thunderbird. They should be able to take the Firefox policy files and make a couple changes and that's it.

They said they don't have the resources.
I'm willing to progress this (if I can)
Can you point me towards policy code so I can do the tweaks to suit?

Would this policy code support all settings, including email account prefs?

You can see what policies were implemented for Thunderbird here:

https://searchfox.org/comm-central/source/mail/components/enterprisepolicies/schemas/policies-schema.json

Right now they only have copied over some Firefox policies. There is nothing unique for thunderbird.

The policies themselves are created by adding the schema to that file and then implementing the policy code in:

Feel free, don't think I can help much. Took a look last night. But bit Past my level of expertise.

Happy to test though. Or at least some sort of help.

Can we redirect this over to

For reference, https://github.com/thundernest/policy-templates is now created and we can adjust the documentation there to be Thunderbird specific, for the small parts that differs (like non-applicable policies)

First two policies were implemented - found a program bug on the way. #1579019
