Main Inclusion Report for kubuntu-firefox-installer


  1. Availability: http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/k/kubuntu-firefox-installer; available for all supported architectures

  2. Rationale:

    • Kubuntu can't/doesn't want to ship Firefox by default, yet it is a major brand and renders mostly better than Konqueror. It is believed that a user would look for Firefox (considering they know what it is) in the menu. In order to provide them a way to easily obtain Firefox the kubuntu-firefox-installer adds a menu entry and provides a very simple application to install Firefox.
  3. Security:

    • No known CVE entries
    • No known Secunia history
    • No rooted binaries or daemons
    • No network activity whatsoever
    • Does not directly (not through a library) process binary (video, audio, etc) or structured (PDF, etc) data
    • No known source code reviews available
  4. Quality assurance:

    • Should always work out of the box
    • No debconf questions asked
    • Not in Debian
    • Kubuntu == Upstream

  5. UI standards:

    • User-visible strings are internationalized using standard gettext system
