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:

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.

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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -qi js
