First off, welcome, and a happy new year to you. Just a comment:

You do not put install files in the source array, so delete the
$pkgname.install from the source array and the corresponding sha512 sum.
(See `man 5 PKGBUILD')

To me it looks like you just changed the name. I would simply send an
email to arch-general asking for a TU to merge the thunderbird-aurora
package and this one.
