Mozilla please provide updated ebuilds.

Comment 3 Jory A. Pratt 2006-02-05 13:50:02 UTC
Everything is in spot I will keep track of bugs over next few days then we will make a call to stable. DO NOT call for stable until you get up with me to make sure we have no major problems that need to be addressed.
Comment 4 Sune Kloppenborg Jeppesen gentoo-dev 2006-02-09 08:45:01 UTC
Jory are we ready to start stable marking?
Comment 5 Jory A. Pratt 2006-02-09 08:50:42 UTC
Everything is in ready. nss-3.11 and nspr-4.6.1-r1 need to be marked stable at same time with any other deps. If arch has a specific problem let me know as soon as possible so we can A:) try and fix it or B:) backport fixes. X86 and AMD64 do not forget about firefox-bin-
Comment 6 Jory A. Pratt 2006-02-09 08:51:52 UTC
oops. forgot to cc arch's.
Comment 7 Chris Gianelloni (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-02-09 09:16:13 UTC
Exactly what ebuilds do we need to mark stable that are not vulnerable?  I have to inject all of these into the 2006.0 release snapshot and really need to know exactly what I need.
Comment 8 Gustavo Zacarias (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-02-09 09:18:25 UTC
It's highly likely won't work right for sparc, so start thinking "backport".
Comment 9 Thierry Carrez (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-02-09 10:43:03 UTC
Note: There should be a 1.0.8 with the fixorz one day.
Comment 10 Jory A. Pratt 2006-02-09 11:17:01 UTC
as I was just informed of a small issue with nspr/nss please stablize nss-3.11-r1 and nspr-4.6.1-r2. That is last known issue I have of major concern, sorry for the inconvience of anyone working on moving packages to stable already.
Comment 11 Thierry Carrez (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-02-12 10:35:56 UTC
Since 1.0.8 is in the pipe, it's probably better to wait for it rather than rush stable-ization of the 1.5 branch. There are only two big things in this update. One that only affects the 1.5-line (which was never stable so we can consider it fixed) and the other which has embargoed details until 1.0.8 is out... So no real hurry here.

If everyone agrees I will set this back to [upstream] status.
Comment 12 Mark Loeser (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-02-15 18:23:55 UTC
So, we are waiting for 1.0.8 then?
Comment 13 Thierry Carrez (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-02-16 12:46:19 UTC
It all depends on the ETA, but I prefer that stableization of 1.5 is decorrelated of security forced upgrade... Removing arches for now.
Comment 14 Joshua Jackson (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-02-21 14:29:14 UTC
Any update about a time frame with 1.0.8?
Comment 15 Thierry Carrez (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-02-22 09:57:10 UTC

It should not appear before mid-March... If there is global consensus amongst arches that the 1.5 branch is stable, feel free to stableize it. In which case we'll release a GLSA when all security-supported arches will have done that stableization.
Comment 16 Thierry Carrez (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-02-26 08:14:00 UTC
Mozilla team, arch teams: please reply to comment #15
Comment 17 Jory A. Pratt 2006-02-26 16:13:17 UTC
I have not found any reason to prevent from going stable. If someone has any question email me and I will answer them the best I can.
Comment 18 Gustavo Zacarias (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-02-26 18:38:02 UTC
It's still broken for sparc, and AFAIK for alpha too.
Comment 19 Joshua Jackson (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-03-02 13:51:53 UTC
I know that there's a lot of dislike about the 1.5 tree by quite a few users. Now this isn't to say that we shouldn't go stable with a 1.5. However, I feel its important to take it into consideration. I will however follow what other arches feel is appropriate. As we've waited for a month now..I don't think the two or so weeks for 1.0.8 is going to make much difference at this point either.
Comment 20 Mark Loeser (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-03-07 20:47:46 UTC
x86 shouldn't have any problems with 1.5 if it is decided to go that route instead of waiting for 1.0.8.
Comment 21 Matthias Langer 2006-03-22 20:11:37 UTC
I've done (and still doing while writing this) some testing with www-client/mozilla-firefox- with "-debug +gnome +ipv6 +java -mozdevelop -xinerama -xprint" against x86. To do that, i've also unmasked
dev-libs/nss-3.11-r1. As far as i can tell, everything seems to work fine for me. I've also verified that net-www/mplayerplug-in-2.8.0 still does it's job without a remerge. If anyone is interested, i can also test, or verify my results on another x86 system.

Comment 22 Matthias Langer 2006-03-22 21:01:59 UTC
Well, i've just noticed, shortly after posting my last comment, that there is at least one minor issue with mozilla-firefox- It seems to consume lot's of cpu cycles when drawing sites with flash animations. For example, try I've only noticed this, because firefox suddenly was a bit slow when scrolling .... With an athlon-xp 2400+, 768MB ram and a GeForce3 Ti 200, that is not what you expect.
Comment 23 Matthias Langer 2006-03-24 12:17:50 UTC
well, the flash-animation slowing down firefox-1.5.01-r2 on seemed to have been a specific advertisment that actually played some sort of movie. Now that this advertisment is gone, firefox-1.5.01-r2 no longer consumes lot's of cpu when viewing this site, allthough this stite still contains lot's of flash animations. I've also tested firefox-1.5.01-r2 on, a page with must be a nightmare for every browser. This site slows firefox- down heavily, but this is also true for 1.0.7.

Recapitulating: I'm now using firefox- for almost three days as my default browser, what means that i've used the software a lot, and did not face any real problems. In my opinion this package is ready for stable on x86.
