Description Paul W. Frields 2006-05-10 19:54:33 EDT
Description of problem:
The ChangeLog for liferea states (in part):

        * The source package now contains a Firefox
          extension (feedbag.xpi) that changes the
          live bookmarks button so that it will add
          add subscriptions directly to Liferea.

Any chance of getting this included in the package?  I see beagle includes
%{_libdir}/beagle/beagle.xpi, for example.
Comment 1 Brian Pepple 2006-05-10 20:00:49 EDT
I believe for that it needs to be built against Firefox, which is not currently
possible since FC doesn't provide a firefox-devel package.  When I get some free
time I'll look into this closer.
Comment 2 Paul W. Frields 2006-05-10 20:16:17 EDT
I don't know much about .xpi extension installers, but I don't think they need
to be "built."  They're ready to go.  (I checked the one in liferea and it does
indeed work "out of the box," so to speak.)  If you look at rpm -q --scripts
beagle, you can see how that maintainer did it.  Just a suggestion, thanks for
your time and packaging efforts!
Comment 3 Brian Pepple 2006-05-10 21:20:07 EDT
Yeah, they're not built, but the .jar's are packaged into something like
/usr/lib/firefox/chrome.  Regardless, this is a pretty low-priority item, and
when I get some free time I'll look at it further.

This is being published as a Firefox extension at

Closing since this is being dropped from future tarballs.
