Chrome project already gives 32-bit and 64-bit dev and beta builds foropenSUSE (and fedora). We can just work with those chrome packagers instead
of building it ourselves. I see no benefit in building chrome by ourselves.
If we are paranoid about chrome recording few things that we do, we should
ideally use a different browser, like Firefox
I hope I never see you in the future trying to promote people to get
enrolled with openSUSE or crying about the lack of it... Because such
attitudes just make contributors run away... Raymond (and many others)
work and efforts should be rewarded, and situations like the one you
suggest doesn't sound like a reward.
I've been noticing openSUSE is closing all the channels for free
contributors... If you SUSE/Novell/Attachmate or whoever is pushing
the hidden agenda's want to block contributors, then just state what
you are trying to accomplish, because most of what I ear is play
bullshit and everyone is loosing credibility (one example: the current
board and the Foundation to be done during this year).
Take a deep breath :-)
-> openSUSE community is spending effort to give chromium for openSUSE
-> Chrome community is spending effort to give Chrome for openSUSE
-> There are no patches added by openSUSE to customize chromium
-> Chrome development is going on at a rapid pace
So, instead of working on two different places to make Chrome available for
*openSUSE* users, we should focus on just one place so that it will be more
efficient. Much like, two people digging a water-well in one place instead of
two different places.
Also, I do not intend to block Raymond. I am merely recommending him to work
with the Chrome community who is already giving RPMs for openSUSE. It is just a
proposal and he can happily reject it as he wish.
I understand that you may be unhappy with the board/foundation related
happenings in openSUSE, but trust me, my mail has nothing related to any of it.
Read through my previous mails once again with an clear mindset and see if you
find anything other than trying to get best Chrome experience on openSUSE.
Have Fun :-)
P.S: I have been using Chrome from Google during 11.4 and even now on my 12.1
box without any issues. So I am not really sure what the problem you referred
to was. Even if there was a problem, I am sure the chromium community will be
happy to fix it, for the benefit of the openSUSE users.
