Description Michel Alexandre Salim 2009-02-28 23:29:48 EST
Description of problem:
This package's description is rather confusingly worded:

"JavaScript is the Netscape-developed object scripting languages.
This package has been created for purposes of Sablotron and is suitable
for embedding in applications."

- object scripting languages <-- plural
- mention of Sablotron without elaboration

It would probably be better to just copy the description from Mozilla's pages -- these two paragraphs could be combined:

https://developer.mozilla.org/en/About_JavaScript
JavaScript is the Netscape-developed object scripting language used in millions of web pages and server applications worldwide. Netscape's JavaScript is a superset of the ECMA-262 Edition 3 (ECMAScript) standard scripting language, with only mild differences from the published standard.

https://developer.mozilla.org/en/SpiderMonkey
SpiderMonkey is Gecko's JavaScript engine written in C. It is used in various Mozilla products, including Firefox, and is available under MPL/GPL/LGPL tri-license.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
1.70-3

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -qi js
