Description

(since my last attempt apparently failed)

We need to document what the various embedding packages available on mozilla.org
are, either on the web site or the ftp server.  From earlier email:

 >>embed-win32.zip
A zip file which has the "base embedding distribution" i.e. the minimal set of
files required to run a client (such as MfcEmbed) which embeds Gecko. No
installer involved here. One just unzips and runs MfcEmbed.

>> gre-win32-installer.exe
Windows standalone GRE installer, which installs a specific version of a GRE.
This installer is used by the GRE enabled Mozilla/NS installers. Also, used by
MfcEmbed installer, please see below

>>mfcembed-win32-installer.exe
An installer which installs the GRE enabled MfcEmbed application. This installer
also contains the standalone GRE installer.The MfcEmbed installer will install a
GRE(by running the GRE installer) if one is not already present on the users
system. It skips the GRE installer part if it finds a compatible GRE already
installed on the users system

>> gecko-sdk-win32.zip
I _think_ this zip file has just the Gecko interfaces which are currently marked
as FROZEN. If that's the case, no, it's not a complete embedable gecko SDK. Doug?

This doesn't really belong in the MDC product.

I think MDC has this covered, and most of those packages no longer exist anyway.
