Registered by Rick Spencer on 2009-04-28

Discuss Firefox in Karmic, other web browser options, and how to support ARM.

Actions/Goals from the spec document:

Firefox/Xulrunner:
   1. http://wiki.ubuntu.com/MozillaTeam/Specs/Karmic/Firefox35Transition

Chromium:
   1. start upstream discussion on stable/security release procedures (see above)
   2. file upstream bugs about support for system libs for third_party libs
   3. most likely not in the archive for karmic

Webkit:
   1. migrate most xulrunner rdepends to Webkit (see: http://wiki.ubuntu.com/MozillaTeam/Specs/Karmic/Firefox35Transition)
   2. understand upstream procedures for stable release updates and coordinated security updates

2009-05-28: Webkit is not yet accessible, work is ongoing but not yet ready. (TheMuso)

Work items:
Firefox 3.5 Transition: DONE
Webkit - Migrate XUL rdepends to webkit: DONE
Webkit - Investigate and Document upstream release/security process: POSTPONE
Webkit - File upstream bug on Epiphany Profile Migration (from xulrunner to webkit): DONE
Chromium - Discuss and document release/security process with upstream: POSTPONE
Chromium - File upstream bugs for supporting system third party libs: POSTPONE

2009-09-08 rickspencer3 - removing from Karmic goals, seems to overlap with firefox 3.5 blueprint

Oct 09 asac - this is implemented. the chromium third party bugs are off the table as this seems unrealistic; set to POSTPONE anyway as i didnt know what other state to use.
