More work for someone to do? If someone wants to do that, OK, but
otherwise I think the ESR version is more appropriate balance between
stable and current. Otherwise just get binaries of the developer
version from Mozilla?
It applies to Iceweasel, too. The Firefox team in Red Hat is not really
in the position to throw resources into new things. We already have
more development requirements than we can possibly do. So we'll keep
packaging Firefox for Fedora because that's the browser we need to
support in RHEL, too.
So if the decision is Iceweasel (looks like a lot of people in the
discussion find Icecat as not so good option), then the question also
is who's going to maintain it.
