Building a Firefox Debian package

It's actually been possible for some time, but I made that simpler recently, and I figured I should mention it.

  • Grab the iceweasel source
    $ apt-get source iceweasel
  • Install its build dependencies
    $ apt-get build-dep iceweasel
  • Build it
    $ cd iceweasel-*
    $ PRODUCT_NAME=firefox dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot

    Maybe add “-us -uc” to the dpkg-buildpackage call, since we are not going to sign the .dsc and .changes files.

    Is the branding ever going to be switched back per default?

    Has the legal situation with Mozilla’s trademark stuff been resolved?
