Description Conrad Meyer 2009-09-07 20:37:29 UTC
Description of problem:

The firefox spec (current F-11 one at: http://cvs.fedoraproject.org/viewvc/rpms/firefox/F-11/firefox.spec?revision=1.337&view=markup ) lacks any documentation about how to obtain the source.

This violates the packaging guidelines (https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:SourceURL) and should be fairly easy to fix (either make %Source0 a URL, or describe how to get the source).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
CVS revision 1.337, ironically enough.

Additional Info:
In my specific case, I was looking for the firefox source code at the upstream website, but couldn't find it easily. So, I looked in pkgdb for firefox, went to CVS, and looked for a Source0 URL, but was disappointed to find no such URL nor any instructions for getting the source.
