No Compromise Solution

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on October 24, 2006 12:29 AM
There is one solution which requires no compromise on debian's DFSG, Mozilla's trademarks, and user experience:

Mozilla releases the official debian package. This gives them their desired 'quality control'. This "Mozilla Debian Firefox" release also uses official GPL'd artwork, to conform to Debian guidelines, and because Mozilla cannot violate it's own trademark.

I'm sure that the same maintainers could maintain the package on behalf of Mozilla.

Any thoughts?
