Comment 1 Marco Pesenti Gritti 2004-12-06 20:24:22 UTC
At this time I dont think it make sense to do an update announcement.
Probably the announce was not done because they looks like just
rebuilds for a newer mozilla version.

Comment 2 Bernd Bartmann 2004-12-06 20:30:52 UTC
Nearly every other package maintainer was so kind to send out their
missing announcements. Please do so as well.

Even if it's only a feature update and not a security update it has to
be announced. There are lots of users out there that don't use
auto-update tools like up2date and yum. They'll never know when a new
update is available.

The only exception I understand would be if you have just another
update in the release pipeline.

Comment 3 Marco Pesenti Gritti 2004-12-06 20:36:58 UTC
Well, I'd need to at least know why they was rebuilt, I was not the
maintainer at that time. Chris, was this because of API changes in
mozilla or what?

Comment 4 Christopher Blizzard 2004-12-10 21:27:22 UTC
Yes, API changes.
