The Firefox maintainer, Chris Aillon asked me to forward this along to this
list.  He's swamped right now trying to get the fixes for the various
Mozilla security issues backported.  He's looking for anyone willing to
help roll new Firefox packages for FC5 and rawhide.

If someone wants to simply rev the spec, commit, and build, that's fine 
(and very welcome) as long as the Release is set to 2 for rawhide, and 
1.1.fc5 for fc5 (to keep up with my numbering scheme).  I find its best 
to not jump out of doing something you'd rather not jump back into, 
which is why I'm focusing on the backport.
