We should add source to the in-product donate links to we can track effectiveness. Like at https://searchfox.org/comm-central/rev/630f951ef8efd45af34ef07382851a4ab3184d6c/mail/base/content/utilityOverlay.js#197

Sancus, any opinion on what to put in there?

There is also the link in the about dialog.

https://github.com/thundernest/thunderbird-website/blob/master/settings.py#L115

The website uses utm_source, utm_medium, and utm_content. utm_source is the only required one, and it's always 'thunderbird.net' for the website. In this case, you could use "thunderbird_client". utm_content tells you what was clicked, so on the website for example "header", or "footer", or whatever descriptive term of the location of the link. utm_medium is always "referral" on the site, and I have no idea if that's required or not, but it's what was used before so I left it in. Ryan might know if that parameter still does anything. I don't have access to the software that tracks these clicks. I suspect it's not critical, though.

That should be shipped in TB 69 beta, too, right?
