[New: openFATE 311163] packaging firefox add-ons
Feature added by: Ludwig Nussel (lnussel)

Feature #311163, revision 1
Title: packaging firefox add-ons

Hackweek VI: Unconfirmed
Priority
Requester: Important

Requested by: Ludwig Nussel (lnussel)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org

Description:
We lack a way to be able to easily package firefox add-ons as rpm. Packages of
add-ons are useful both for the distro vendor and for admins. Distro (or
appliance) vendors may install some add-ons by default. Admins want all users
to have certain add-ons by default. Moreover some add-ons are not noarch (like
bonjourfoxy) and need to be compiled specifically for each distro so a package
is unavoidable. To make all of that possible the firefox package needs to
provide rpm macros so spec files for add-ons become really simple. By creating
a script that downloads version, description etc from addons.mozilla.org and
automatically creates spec files the task of packaging add-ons becomes a piece
of cake.

See home:lnussel:firefox for current status.
