Is firefox-developer-edition actually needed in repos?


#1

As in the title…
Apparently maintenance of this package including defaults, hooks and such takes quite some work.
I was wondering why or if at all this is needed in our repos…
@jonathon @philm @Ste74 ?


#2

Do you mean? Is not maintained by arch? We only rewrite the distribution.ini… Or i missed some things?


#3

firefox-developer-edition is maintained in arch repos.

People on the forum do use it… not sure if it’s needed but it is used

I guess it is safe to say that if an older PKGBUILD is building from Mozilla archive then it can be ditched in favor of the Arch package.
