Status in “sugar-hulahop” package in Ubuntu: Fix Released

Bug description:
xulrunner-1.9 landed in jaunty. sugar-hulahop was built against Since the path changes to libxul, we need a rebuild against

Stable Release Updates are needed for hardy and inrepid. Since hardy has a different sourcepackage its SRU is logged in bug 329033 and the instructions below are for intrepid.

The impact of the bug is that Sugar's web browser based on xulrunner (sugar-web-activity) fails to start because the libxul.so path has changed. This is a very important package for Sugar, and prevents Sugar users from running their web browser.

The fix is a simple rebuild against the current xulrunner-1.9, so the risk is minimal for doing this to the stable releases. Jaunty has been fixed by a no changes upload to sugar-hulahop 0.4.8~dfsg-3ubuntu4.

The debdiff will be attached.

TEST CASE: Install sugar and sugar-activities. Launch Sugar by running sugar-emulator. Press F3 to see the Home View, and then if you don't see any activity icons around the central "XO" logo, click on list view at the top right of the screen. Scroll the list to find "Browse" and click on the icon to launch it. If the icon pulses at the centre of the screen for several seconds and then returns to the Home View/List View, it failed. If a web browser appears, then it succeeded. Quit the sugar emulator by pressing alt-shift-q.

Since the browser completely fails to launch now, and the fix is simply a rebuild, there's no risk of further regression.
