User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9b3pre) Gecko/2008020507 Firefox/3.0b3pre Build Identifier: There is currently no repository or other source to update and install nightly builds via the package managers of Debian, Ubuntu or derivatives. This makes testing them unnecessarily more laborious. Deb packages should be provided along with the usual .tar.bz ones. (A repository would be even better, of course) Reproducible: Always
There are several reasons why this isn't a good idea: - you can already use a mozilla.org build, and the built-in nightly updates, to keep up to date easily. Just download a build, unpack it somewhere, and adjust PATH so that <somewhere> is appears before the system install. - SwiftFox has a deb repository with builds optimised by processor architecture, you can investigate how frequently they update that - if you want a nightly of debian's version of Firefox, then their (rather large) patch would be needed. We don't have the resources to build two nightlies to support this, and it's really something for Debian to do - we don't attempt to make packages for every distro under the sun, because they like to do their own thing, and know their layout best
