No, not yet.  I'll put out a message to ask which alternative is most
appropriate.

Seamonky

I just noticed that Seamonky 1.0 has been released.
http://www.mozillazine.org/talkback.html?article=7957

Should we be using this instead of the Mozilla suite?

I say yes because it most likely builds in the exact same way as
Firefox/Thunderbird-1.5 with the same Gecko-1.8 backend.  Also, if
anyone wants to build Mozilla-1.7.x, they can look in the museum cause
that thing's not gonna change.  But I don't use the suite.

On the other hand, If it builds the same way, why remove Mozilla? I
would just add sea monkey.

I thought they were the *exact same thing*. Only Seamonkey is the
updated version. Why keep both?

To put it another way, I thought

Mozilla-1.7.x to ------> Seamonkey-1.0

is the same as

Firefox-1.0.x to ------> Firefox-1.5

Am I confused here?

Absolutely true, but I'm not the one doing the housekeeping around here.

This is right in a way.  The exception being that since Seamonkey is
not an officially sponsored Mozilla project it is "derived" from
Mozilla as they say on the project page.  For our intents and
purposes, though, yes Seamonkey is just the Gecko-1.8 version of
Mozilla.  I'm pretty sure it comes from the exact same trunk as the
rest of the Mozilla products.

Placement of Links to the Wiki in BLFS

There has been some discussion of where to place a link to User Notes on
BLFS pages.  After reviewing the messages, I want to get the opinion one
more time from the members of this list so we can standardize.

The User Notes link needs to go at the _end_ of a section.  The
candidates are:

Introduction
Installation
Command Explanations
Configuration  (not always present)
Contents

Of course, there may be some exceptions for unusual cases that will be
made on a case-by-case basis.

Please vote with *one* of the above sections.  I will leave this open
until Friday, February 3 at 2200 CST (Saturday, Feb 4, 0400 GMT).
Discussions to lobby for your favorite placement should be done in a
separate thread.

I'll start the voting with:

Installation

Are you seconding the advocation of adding SeaMonkey to the book,
yet keeping the Mozilla suite as well? This is what is sounds like.

I would like to formerly disagree with this suggestion, though two
have already suggested it (if I have Dan's thoughts correct). I
just cannot see keeping a (probably dormant) version of a package,
along with it's replacement in the book.

If it turns out that SeaMonkey is just a fork, and that both
continue to thrive, then perhaps, maybe, but it would take serious
consideration to keep such *almost exact same packages* alive
in the BLFS book.
