Re: How does Firefox 2 get added?

In short, there's no compelling reason to go to Firefox 2.0, and Fedora will
probably skip it.

Having gone ahead and installed Christopher Aillon's test packages on my
devel-tree machine, this seems like a really good decision to me.

He mentions technical reasons to avoid it, but I can't entirely follow the discussion.

Can anyone explain succinctly why my FC5 can process a dozen updates a week, including kernel updates, but this one is "just too much trouble"?

Don't get me wrong, I don't even use FF--I prefer Seamonkey--but I would like to have the /current/ FF available, if nothing else, for testing purposes and for supporting people who are using FF2.

Does the Mozilla updater work under Linux? Even if it does, I prefer to use an yum/rpm-based install.
