Hi folks,

A few days ago I read a post on the blog of one of the core developers of Mozilla Firefox (Mike Connor) about patches in other branches. He was publicly curious how he and his team could make patching Firefox with other ones patches more easy.

I (as a fanatic OpenBSD user and Firefox supporter) thought that the BSD port maintainers might not be excluded from this discussion.

Maybe you guys want to talk with Mike about the various problems and patches you are working with to make Firefox work on NetBSD.

The post at Mike's blog I'm talking about is at: nobody has replied yet which I think is a missed opportunity.

Just my 2 cents,

Tim Kuijsten
