Desktopd Mozilla extensions

Can you add

  • ClickGuard (GPL-3+, a general security/utility add-on for everyone)
  • Zombie Navigator (AGPL-3+, because can be used server-side) An important add-on because this is specifically developed to enable full unattended automation of GNU IceCat, Debian Iceweasel, Trisquel ABrowser, Mozilla-branded Firefox (which require signing by Mozilla), or any modern Firefox-based browser on GNU, BSDs, OS/X, or even Windows. Many people say full automation of Firefox requires signing-disabled versions of Firefox, but this add-on is even approved and signed by Mozilla so works everywhere in theory.

Both require ESR 38 or later. The DesktopD project is a project to develop desktop-related free software utilities and innovative supporting code libraries. (Source code repositories) --Desktopd (talk) 06:09, 9 March 2016 (EST)

  • We've released a new and hot extension for Mozilla products: No Resource URI Leak (GPLv3+, Git). It fixes one of the most critical privacy leaks and fingerprinting vectors in Firefox-based browsers. It is really tiny but pretty important until the Mozilla bug is fixed (likely not soon). I think we should have it in GNU IceCat by default because the problem needs a browser-level fix. Can you help? Thanks.

@Desktopd Added. IceCat is unmaintained for the moment. --David Hedlund (talk) 13:09, 8 June 2016 (EDT)

I started a discussion on a page you created: Talk:ARChon Packager --IanK (talk) 22:34, 14 October 2016 (EDT)

I also started a discussion on Talk:Addressbooks Synchronizer. Do you get notification on this wiki if I just use your user page link? I see an option for it in the newer mediawiki version, but not this one. Btw, nice contributions you've made, I'm just getting involved. I'm hoping to get rid of the approval backlog, keep it gone, and upgrade this mediawiki instance and make it load way faster like wikipedia's speed. --IanK (talk) 00:47, 15 October 2016 (EDT)

Status of GNU Sovix and Sovix Diet?

What is the status of these projects? Mattl (talk) 17:28, 1 November 2016 (EDT)

I don't work on any of them since several years. --David Hedlund (talk) 15:24, 3 November 2016 (EDT)

Circus Linux

Hi David. This package is a game that runs on GNU/Linux. It has nothing to do with the whole system. Telling its name is an irritant to be avoided is a wrong interpretation of this text. IMHO, such templates should be avoided ;) Genium (talk) 15:06, 16 January 2017 (EST)

GNU Radio

As Joshua said, "we are pretty close to getting all of the GNU packages with a<package> URL to have a corresponding<packagename>"… Could you please restore gnuradio? Genium (talk) 11:00, 19 January 2017 (EST)

The renaming caused the antifeature flag to get lost.Cypherpunks (talk) 12:11, 19 January 2017 (EST)
