I've been preparing Firefox 4 since quite some time in mozilla:beta (and
previously :alpha) and I run it everywhere meanwhile.
The initial Firefox roadmap said it would have been ready by october
this year but was slipped to something "early 2011"
which would still fit into the openSUSE 11.4 release.
There are still some issues and quite some not updated extensions but to
get proper testing I think it makes sense to go for Firefox 4 in Factory
My plan is to do the update before Milestone 5 (actually right after
milestone 4 to get a feeling before M5 gets done).
I do _not_ plan to have an easy fallback to Firefox 3.x in Factory but
it will be available in the mozilla repository as always. The reasons are:
1. it's extra work to have a package available for parallel installation
2. the much more important one: There is always a risk for user profiles
when doing major downgrades.
Please tell me if there are strong arguments not to do it this way.
