[openFATE 311163] packaging firefox add-ons
Feature changed by: Ludwig Nussel (lnussel)
Feature #311163, revision 3
Title: packaging firefox add-ons

Hackweek VI: Implementation
Priority
Requester: Important

Requested by: Ludwig Nussel (lnussel)
Developer: (Novell)
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
+ 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.
