Description Peter Weilbacher 2008-02-11 02:26:55 PST
My "enhanced" builds package a few extra files. As the recent problem reported by John Clemente in the mozilla.dev.ports.os2 newsgroup shows, it is necessary to add them to the installer, so that they get removed before an upgrade. Otherwise they might give problems and SeaMonkey might not even start any more.

The problematic files are:
components/rwsos2.dll
components/rwsos2.xpt

I also package (or at some point packaged)
RWSCLI08.DLL
RWSSRV08.DLL
RWS08.CMD
RWSUTIL08.CMD
RWSCLI07.DLL
RWSSRV07.DLL
RWSUTIL07.CMD
RWSUTIL.CMD
The 07 variant should be removed, too, as RWS 0.7 isn't supported any more, but those of v0.8 we should still leave.

components/ipluginw.{dll,readme} is shipped with my builds, too. But that doesn't seem to cause any problems and it might be annoying to users to remove it.

I'll make a patch some time before the next SM release.

OK, so this removes most RWS support files. I think we should leave the up-to-date RWS*08* files there in case the user placed them there on purpose. rwsos2.xpt isn't shipped any more with my PmW-* builds but I think at one time it was.
