Help Needed: Firefox 0.8 and Thunderbird 0.6


Please assist Fedora Extras in preparing revisions of the firefox-0.8 and thunderbird-0.6 packages before the release of FC2. These packages are patched with Blizzard's xremote fixes which finally allow perfect integration with both firefox & thunderbird running simultaneously. We have also spent a great deal of time making sure they work within the newly fixed Preferred Application framework of FC2.

Only minor changes are needed to both packages before publication. Also it would help if Fedora Desktop volunteers can help to contact upstream developers to either act as liasons, or work directly with Fedora Extras development.

Even non-programmers can help by searching upstream mozilla.org bugzilla and talking to firefox or mozilla developers about this issue. It is very likely that there already exists a patch or workaround for this issue, but the developers are too busy to search for it. You can help!

For example, we have made this kind of very successful partnership with three upstream gaim developers. They are automatically added to all Fedora gaim bug reports, and have helped us immensely to be very responsive to user bugzilla reports and package fixing. (Currently there are ZERO open gaim reports in FC!)
