Well, not yet. I've come to the conclusion that there is no chance at all to get all the changes for Haiku into mozilla code before Firefox2 end of life. So it's time for plan B.
Plan B is described in Mozilla Licensing
under "I want to distribute a modified version of Firefox (or other MPL-covered code). What do I have to do?"
* We need to list and make the modifications available on the net for at least 12 months (no problems)
* Add MPL headers to new files (no problems, only a few NSPR-files)
* Include a statement that your code is derived from the particular piece of MPLed code you started with (e.g. Firefox), and a list of the names of the Initial Developers of that code (just point to mozilla page?)
* We probably need a Mozilla Foundation trademark license for (the Firefox name or logo).
According to the policy on trademark usage
we need one as it will be some 'serious' modifications.
Before we put forward a request at Trademark Usage Requests
, is there any opinions and comments, and maybe even a good wording for such a request?
I guess that the changes to Firefox should probably be fairly limited to get their approval:
* gcc4 fixes
* configuration changes for Haiku building
* bugfixes for Haiku building
* new NSPR (if not checked in)
* Native colors fixes
* Native executable (by hand or by mmadia modified patch)
* port setup fix.
