Any news here? we have xulrunner- stable, but what about xulrunner-bin? It's needed for the big Mozilla GLSA...
Comment 2 Jory A. Pratt gentoo-dev 2010-09-16 13:04:53 UTC
mozilla has nothing to do here, xulrunner-bin has been removed from tree.
Comment 3 Sean Amoss gentoo-dev Security 2012-03-09 18:07:18 UTC
Already on the existing Mozilla GLSA draft.
