A lot of people (whose native scripts are complex) would be glad to see nightly binaries with CTL enabled available for download. I'm not sure if I'm filing this bug under the appropriate component. If it's got to be filed under 'mozilla.org', feel free to change it.
How should the archive be named ? Canidates: 1. mozilla-i686-pc-linux-gnu-ctl.tar.gz (for CTL-enabled build) 2. mozilla-i686-pc-linux-gnu-ctl-svg.tar.gz (for CTL+SVG-enabled build) 3. mozilla-i686-pc-linux-gnu-ctl-gcc2953.tar.gz (for CTL-enabled build, incl. the info that this build was compiled with gcc2.95.3) 4. mozilla-i686-pc-linux-gnu-ctl-svg-gcc2953.tar.gz (for CTL+SVG-enabled build, incl. the info that this build was compiled with gcc2.95.3)
Summary: make CTL-enabled nightly binary (for ix86) available on ftp.mozilla.org → make CTL-enabled nightly binary (for x86) available on ftp.mozilla.org
Can we have a --enable-ctl binary on Win* as well? I understand from comment #1 that this proposal is only for a *nix binary.
I don't care much, but including the compiler info. seems to be a good idea. BTW, can we just make CTL+SVG instead of CTL and CTL+SVG? Needless to say, having more options are better than fewer, but given that the retention period (for nightly builds) of ftp.mozilla.org got significantly shortened this year, it may not afford to have two additional nightlies. I have little idea of the situation at ftp.mozilla.org so that you may disregard this as you see fit. BTW, if ftp.mozilla.org has room for two additional binaries, I'd prefer to have CTL+SVG and CTL+SVG+Xft (instead of CTL and CTL+SVG). Most Linux users got accustomed to Xft and would be disappointed to see non-Xft build. As for Win32 with CTL enabled, it'd be nice, but it depends on Roland. He volunteered to make ix86-linux nightlies, but I'm not sure if he has the resource for Win32 nightlies. BTW, until bug 203406 is resolved (I'm waiting for r/sr), enabling CTL on Win32 wouldn't have any effect on Mozilla's Devanagari support on Win9x/ME.
