Bug Description

Binary package hint: mozvoikko

Today's latest firefox-3.5 (just a few days before releasing the Karmic final) Breaks mozvoikko, so APT tries to remove mozvoikko. This is undesirable. Fixing this requires either adjusting the dependencies of mozvoikko or firefox-3.5 or both, the rebuilding the binary.

Somehow, that upload never made it to the repository. Has it failed to build, perhaps?

I can't find any message about failed build. Perhaps this delay has something to do with the current freeze, should we subscribe the release team or something?
