Bug Description

Binary package hint: xulrunner-1.9.1

I'm trying to merge/sync package chmsee from debian.

Since the 1.9.1 transition xulrunner-dev provides dh_xulrunner command which is used to detect xulrunner dependency.

Ubuntu's xulrunner-dev does not provide such binary, hence FTBFS.

Could you please add/merge/create dh_xulrunner?

FWIW - I manually worked around this in gnome-python-extras by removing the dh_xulrunner call and manually adding the dependencies

Ok but that would mean increased amount of merges Motu & Devs have to perform.

With my Debian Maintainer hat on I'd rather have my package Xiphos be
in sync with Debian. I guess I'll read the release information I'm
building on and optionally run dh_xulrunner.

I'm really not an expert in mozilla packaging but can you give more
details why Ubuntu shouldn't have dh_xulrunner? Seems like it should
handle transitions easier next time around.

Micah Gersten - thank you

Alexander Sack, If you want to I can prepare a branch with changes "borrowed" from Debian packaging to make sure our dh_xulrunner's match up. Unless you have other/more ideas.

Just tell me which branch you want me to target 1.9.1.head, i guess....?
