I know that it is simple to run FF 2.0 on a Dapper system. But it's a
community thing. I'm member of the admin team of the german
ubuntuusers.de forums and a couple of days ago, when FF 2.0 was
released, every second topic was about "why doesn't ubuntu update my
firefox, and how can I install it".
And people got really angry about the fact, that FF 2.0 won't get
shipped via the standard update repositories. People think that they
always get the latest and greatest versions via the repositories. I know
they are wrong. Since the don't understand the way things are. But it's
hard to explain over and over again, why FF 2.0 is not and will never be
inside the Dapper repos. Especially since Dapper will be supported over
a long period of time.
And since FF 1.5 is inside the breezy-backports i thought that it must
be possible to ship FF 2.0 within the dapper-backports. This would solve
a lot of community related problems.
