It would be really helpful if instead of calling programs
"unmaintainable" and similar non-sense you would research a bit what
really is the problem ... take a look at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/
20crashes&sharer_id=74116 ... that's 1473 NEW untriaged abrt bugs. There
is absolutely nothing unmaintainable on that, only plenty of people who
are calling MoFo and everybody names but they are not willing to move
their butt and help triage this (and yes, abrt seems to be slightly
better now, so the backlog shouldn't hopefully be increasing that much).

There is absolutely no permission required. I saw plenty of patches which
were accepted upstream and just few which were rejected with always
clearly stated reasons (not that I agree with all of those reasons, but
again before calling Firefox proprietary product, it would be nice to
Concerning CLOSED/UPSTREAM resolution ... again, I am not happy with it
myself, but instead of calling MoFo proprietary a bit of patches (this
time on bugs https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=400598, https://
show_bug.cgi?id=356853, and https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?
id=569371) would be helpful. How is your Perlfoo? See what I wrote on
this theme before (http://article.gmane.org/
gmane.linux.redhat.fedora.devel/79936/) and feel free to provide patches
for some better solution of the situation. I can assure you, that well
written patches will be welcomed upstream.

Who is "we"?
I certainly don't intend to replace for my personal needs Firefox with
either of Chromium (ehm, that's an example of open development, right?),
Opera, Epiphany (too simple for my needs, sorry ... I like those guys and
I was using Epiphany for years, but it is just too little too late for my
personal use), galeon (you would need miraculous powers to revive this
dead corpse), or any non-Gnome alternative. If we (whoever it is) must do
something, then where are *your* patches? (http://slashdot.org/
Maybe you want to maintain iceweasel & co. in Fedora? Good luck, but not
for me, thanks.
