Sprints

Whiteboard

2010-06-14 asac: free flash by default is becoming less likely; the rest of this spec is clearly implemented.
2007-05-31 kamion: approved; looking forward to it!

2007-08-13 asac: gnash packages are available ... beta since we still have to upgrade to new upstream release for gutsy.
2007-08-13 asac: updated spec (see Update section on wiki page) ... this spec depends on firefox-distro-addon-support ... but LP refuses to add that dependency

2007-10-22: gnash is in the archive and up-to-date. Unfortunately it is not yet ready (feature-wise) to be installed by default. Thus -> still beta. Lets see if we can ship gnash (or swfdec-mozilla) installed by default in hardy.

2008-12-15 asac: gnash still not ready for default deployment. But since intrepid we have an easy to use plugin switcher, which brings us even closer to the goal.
