Bug Description

As per https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/desktop-o-mozilla-rapid-release-maintenance, these sources (and their corresponding binaries) should be removed from oneiric:

- xulrunner-1.9.2
- xulrunner-2.0
- fennec
- edbrowse
- moz-gnome-pm
- libgluezilla

Just looking at the rdepends of the 2 xulrunner packages,
For xulrunner-1.9.2:
- moonlight-plugin-mozilla - this is an alternate recommends (firefox | abrowser | iceweasel | xulrunner-1.9.2)
- gecko-mediaplayer - this is an alternate depends, and will still be satisfiable (iceweasel | firefox | iceape-browser | epiphany-browser | galeon | xulrunner-1.9.1 | xulrunner-1.9.2 | konqueror (>= 4:4) | opera (>= 9.50) | chromium-browser (>> 4.0))
- mozplugger - same as gecko-mediaplayer

For xulrunner-2.0:
- python-gtkmozembed - this is NBS, and should go away. Currently, listen declares an alternate dependency on it (python-webkit | python-gtkmozembed) which is ok. freespeak and indiv-screenlets also depend on it. I guess I need to fix the latter 2 though.
- mozplugger - alternate dependency (see above)
- vlc has a build-depend on xulrunner-dev. Patch for this is already in debian git (see http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=pkg-multimedia/vlc.git;a=commit;h=617a897d9ce3d73028e8147787d271f741e7b0d0 and http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=pkg-multimedia/vlc.git;a=commit;h=81f4d046ea10f328ae37d5656ffc695f993462c5), and will be sync'd later.
- moon has a build-depend on xulrunner-dev. I've got a fix for that too, but it's blocked on bug 798941. This doesn't need to block us from dropping xulrunner though (it doesn't affect installability of packages, and it's already unbuildable)
- packagekit has an alternate build-depend on xulrunner-dev | firefox-dev, so that's ok

libgluezilla is recommended by libmono-webbrowser0.5-cil. Note that this used to be a depends, but was dropped last cycle so that we could demote xulrunner to universe (see bug 740815)

Note that I ported freespeak and indiv-screenlets to webkit now, so python-gtkmozembed doesn't have anything depending on it anymore

@Matthew Young

firefox-dev will take the place of xulrunner-dev as it already does for packagekit

What about other programs that are based on xulrunner? SWT is based on xulrunner. I upgraded to 12.04 LTS release only to find out that my project is halted because SWT DEPENDS on xulrunner. The release is pretty good, really stable but please do you ever think of your actions before removing packages from the repositories (no offense meant)??? (you could at least leave it there as an option :/).

Currently I tried this workaround and it worked for latest version of SWT (3.7.2 as of this time):

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5817263/how-to-get-eclipse-swt-browser-component-running-on-ubuntu-11-04-natty-narwhal

Also, there are some jni bindings with gtk+ when using synaptic (libswt-gtk-3-jni).

For the time being I will be using this workaround. Any suggestions are welcomed! :)

SWT in oneiric on uses webkit.

... a few years on, we don't have edbrowse in the archive while it's doing fine in debian. I was wondering why, so took a trip down memory lane - https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/edbrowse/+bug/553052 ported it to xulrunner, which debian never did, then this bug dropped it due to xulrunner, instead of reverting to the debian package. FWIW debian package builds fine for xenial in ppa for me.
