Navigator is registered as Communicator via vreg

I don't really know whether the "registration" via "vreg" is of any
In netscape-4.7-6, registration is done for the netscape-communicator
binary, even when packaging the netscape-navigator:
--snip from spec file--
echo 'Communicator,188.8.131.5290915,/usr/lib/netscape' > /tmp/infile
./vreg $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/usr/lib/netscape/registry /tmp/infile
This "registry" file is then packaged into netscape-common.
According to the README.install in the new 4.72 Navigator tar.gz, the
registration string should be something like
BTW, IMHO, "/tmp/infile" should either have some more unique filename, or
be in $RPM_SOURCE_ROOT or the likes. (e.g.
On another note, I would "install -m755" vreg instead of "cp -a"ing it. But
who really cares...
AFAIK, it doesn't affect anything. We could move it
to the -communicator/-navigator subpacakges, but then
that would mean they would conflict with each other
if you had both installed.
