Firefox Updates

Until we get XULRunner , we're stuck with firefox libraries (i.e. gecko-libs) that change version number and break everything every time we update firefox in the build roots. Yes, it sucks.

Updating firefox will break the packages listed below for each release, unless they are rebuilt and updates are pushed out.

You could use the fedoradev-pkgowner script from to look up and email the owners of those packages. ivazquez' pkgquery.py might also be helpful.

F-8

Here's a current list of F-8 packages that require a specific version of firefox.

blam
chmsee
devhelp
epiphany
epiphany-extensions
firefox
galeon
gnome-python2-extras
gnome-web-photo
gtkmozembedmm
kazehakase
liferea
Miro
openvrml
ruby-gnome2
yelp

F-7

The F-7 list is the same as the F-8 list above, with the exception of gnome-web-photo which doesn't have an F-7 branch (as of 2007-11-27).

Packages with non-specific firefox version

Looking at the spec files, eclipse (view spec ), monodevelop (view spec ) and online-desktop (view spec ) don't depend on a specific version (monodevelop simply needs firefox > 1.99 as a BuildRequires).

azureus used to be dependent on a particular version as shown by this bug , but no longer is as of 2008-02-15.
