Okay, but why isn't Firefox ever put into rawhide when it's alphas and
betas become available?
Can you, *without looking at the release notes*, provide compelling
reasons to do so? You've probably looked at the Firefox 2.0 RC1 release
notes by now so you might be able to spew some out, but the bottom line
is: web browsing already works for people. It's not like you can't go
to amazon and read slashdot without the upgrade.
It's as important as Gnome and Gaim
A web browser is important yes. But does it really matter which one?
Seriously. As long as people can buy stuff off ebay and amazon, view
porn, count how many myspace friends they have today, send webmail, look
up music lyrics, or whatever it is people do on the web, that's all they
really care about.
Besides, GNOME and gaim are applications designed and written for you
the Linux user in mind (GNOME arguably is done with the Fedora user in
mind), and we have sway with what goes in to that codebase. Firefox is
written with the Windows user in mind and if you find bugs, I am not
guaranteed to be able to fix them because I (on behalf of Fedora or Red
Hat) can't make changes to the source code without getting approval from
the Mozilla Corporation pursuant to their trademarking guidelines.
As it is now FC7 will
have Firefox 2, but everyone will then be talking about including
And I wonder what color shoes it will be wearing.
