Bug Description

Firefox (29.0), about:startpage. It's totally not a problem for me, but it's a sign that someone forgot to update the version in the start page URL.

On the other hand... If it wasn't noticed by anyone, then maybe it's not important. If it's not important, then maybe it would be best to remove the version from the URL?

  * New upstream release
    - Don't cap the Ubuntu version number used in the startpage URL to a hard
      coded value. Although we build the URL using system information, we
      always had a hardcoded maxium value for the Ubuntu version in order to
      prevent the startpage being broken in the development release. However,
      the 14.10 startpage already exists, and there will be a server-side
      change to make this unnecessary in future development cycles

I don't understand what's happening with unfinished tasks in the transition to the development of new release. And my concern about counter "There are 100 days left in the current cycle. That means that in order to complete all the work 2.68 workitems must be completed per day.". Toward the end of the developing process it is ~100-200 workitems must be completed per day and not completed.

Hello Stéphane, Chris, Martin,

I just downloaded and installed xul-ext-ubufox_2.9-0ubuntu0.14.04.1_all.deb and I confirm that it fixes the issue. The about:startpage site is now correctly fetched from http://start.ubuntu.com/14.04/Google/?sourceid=hp

Best regards,
