In M13 tarball, there is no Readme. It would be cool to add one : )
Punting from "Architecture" product back to "Browser".
Leaf, can you do this or find someone (pgunn?) to do it while I'm on sabbatical? Thanks, /be
The online release notes seem to be working well... for those that are able to startup the builds. I'm going to work on auto-generating a README in the dist/bin directory as part of each optimized build, marking the date, cvs tag and configure line (where applicable).
In current builds there are readmes
In the linux binary tarball from 2000-11-11-06 (mtrunk), there is no README. Reopening. Alex, which tarballs were you talking about? Note: From the summary and the initial description it is not clear if this bug is talking about the source tarball or the binary tarball. I take Leaf's comment about dist/bin that he is talking about the binaries. Fixing summary. I'm going to file a new enhancement request about better READMEs etc. in the source.
Bug 31968 "Need README file in distribution packages" is talking about mainly the same issue.
I was looking at MTrunk for 11/11 Linux Installer
After looking at the three types of linux mozilla build's i found there are readmes in -gnu-installer and -gnu-sea (The two instaler builds) but not in -gnu (regular tarball)
it would be relatively simple to add a line to the xpinstall/packager Makefile to copy the README file from wherever deliver.pl gets it for the installer builds into dist/bin. adding configure options and CVS module info would be slightly more complicated, but doable.
Bugs targeted at mozilla1.0 without the mozilla1.0 keyword moved to mozilla1.0.1 (you can query for this string to delete spam or retrieve the list of bugs I've moved)
reassign to ycalonje
*I have just checked the mozilla 1.4 linux tarballs, and they contain readme files. I suggest marking this as fixed.
engineer gone, wontfix. if you want it, reopen the bug and reassign it to yourself.
