Any plans to add Pale Moon browser various Repositories?

Post by fidelis » 2015-03-11, 15:54

I just wanted to know if there are any plans to add Pale Moon browser to the Debian, Ubuntu and Linux Mint Repositories? It would make installing it a great deal easier.

Repository/package maintainers are free to add unaltered versions of the Linux browser to their repositories. Noncommercial, Open Source operating systems are exempt from binary destribution limitations if the browser is otherwise not materially changed or reconfigured.

Please see the redistribution license: http://www.palemoon.org/redist.shtml specifically point 8.

I personally do not have the time or expertise to properly create and maintain distribution packages for the plethora of different flavors of Linux; that will have to be done by dedicated maintainers intimately familiar with the target OS. It's an open invitation to anyone wishing this addition to step up and take on the task.
