Details

Summary says it all....

"I would, though, like to see an acknowledgement in the top-level
Readme or Release Notes that the binary distro (Camino or Firefox) now
includes a copy of the Java Embedding Plugin, that the MPL is
compatible with its license, and that for more information (and for
the source) you can go to http://javaplugin.sourceforge.net/."

(from smichaud in email)
Putting this on the 1.0 list so we don't forget to dot the last i.  

There's already a mention in the release notes, but the middle point ("that the
MPL is compatible with its license") and second half of the last ("and for the
source") aren't covered.
Target Milestone: --- → Camino1.0
Oops, I'd forgotten that this bug's "Product" is Camino, only.  When it was
opened, only Camino bundled the JEP.

But now that Firefox also bundles it, this bug should cover both "Products".
And both Camino 1.0 and Firefox 1.5 should be "targeted".

But I'm no longer sure Firefox even _has_ a Readme or Release Notes -- the
current distros don't seem to include either of them.

> There's already a mention in the release notes

Thanks!  I'm glad to see it.  (The last time I looked there was just a
recommendation to download and install the JEP.)

I think it'd make sense to add them in the same location (for Camino, at
least).

Steven, please open a separate bug for Firefox (product: mozilla.org), cc
rebron, mconnor and me. Thanks.
Have we still not done this?

Mike, can you add this when you do bug 305371?

Done.  It's bug 313902.  Thanks!

someone please give me the exact text (with wording about licenses, etc) and i'll check it in
Under the paragraph which ends "We advise people still using OS X 10.1 to stay with Camino 0.8.4." add the following:

"Camino now includes the open-source Java Embedding Plugin (JEP) which provides better Java performance to Mozilla products. JEP is licensed under the MIT license, a compatible license to the MPL, which Camino is released under. For more information about licensing see http://www.mozilla.org/MPL/FAQ.html. For more information about JEP, see http://javaplugin.sf.net."
landed on branch. we'll have to migrate everything back from the branch to the trunk after we go back there anyway.
