that would work for Fedora - if it can be guaranteed that they sign new
versions quickly. Immagine if one of our plugins had a security hole and
mozilla would need days or weeks to sign it. As far as I can see Fedora
specific extensions would have to be listed which means they would go
through manual code review at mozilla.
We have no real practical way to do this
other than package up the addon and
build it as a -unsigned package, then making a separate package that has the
precompiled binary and signed by mozilla and put into the add on package.
It sounds like the path mozilla is taking will likely prevent us shipping
addons in Fedora. That of course is their right to pursue that.

For me this appears the only possibility and I suspect there are more
Fedora users like me maintaining their own Firefox extensions.
So will we get a firefox-unbranded package?
