Debian and other distributions (Trisquel, gNewSense, GuixSD) have
unbranded forks of Firefox for years and I don't think this has been
problem for them. In any case I don't think we can call "drastic"
something that multiple other distributions do.
Trisquel, gNewSense, GuixSD are not examples of particularly popular
distributions, so not really good examples how the change cannot harm
us. They target a pretty small user base which probably mostly
appreciate such a policy.
Debian is definitely more popular, but I still think our target
audience is a bit broader, reaching segments where Debian-based distros
are doing much better than Debian itself - Ubuntu, Linux Mint,...
The Debian and GNU projects consider Mozilla Firefox as proprietary
software because it does not meet the Debian Free Software Guidelines
or GNU's definition of free software. Fedora didn't follow that
Yes, it'd be a bit hypocritical of Fedora to claim this is something
bad since Red Hat does the same with RHEL.
I don't think whether we're using a fork or not is important.
just as up-to-date, just as well supported by websites, and would
like Firefox so habbit would not be a problem. The Firefox name and
branding is a problem for Fedora (it prevents us from modifying the
browser), not a benefit.
I disagree. As I already mentioned earlier in this discussion, Firefox
is one of the strongest brands in open source. Using artificial brands
instead of well-established ones won't do us any good as I think it has
never really benefited Debian. Normal users don't understand it and see
it as uncalled for.
