Damn. And my ISP relay decided to reject my mail. Do we have a relay for DDs in need somewhere ?

Update: It seems retrying was enough, there might be a problem with one of my ISP relay servers…

    If Debian is to package FF 2.0 as IceWeasel – is there any scope for packaging the vanilla tarball and submitting individual patches to the Mozilla Foundation. Treat FireFox 2 as a new release and attempt to meet MoFo’s concerns such that Debian can show minimal modifications and none not submitted upstream. That might allow them to consider IceWeasel as equivalent to a FireFox Community Edition. Please copy this idea to Eric Dorland :) My opinion only, of course

    As an end user of Debian Stable, thank you for the amazing amount of effort that you and others have put into porting these security fixes into the 1.0.4 branch of the browser and having done so _without_breaking_mydesktop something that Mozilla Corp. seems to not care about as evidenced by their lack of support for that particular version.
