Bug 561481 pointed out that the readme file was out of date, and that it isn't very useful anyway. Nor does there seem much point in keeping it up to date.

Therefore I think we can remove it as well.


I also agree this is useful for SeaMonkey

Removed README.Txt from release packages. (v1)

I know you were holding off on requesting review until you tested, but figured I would give you guidance early (especially since locales/* won't be tested in your default code paths in a normal build, and iirc you don't have a mac to test with, which is where these issues were anyway)

> MOZ_PKG_MAC_ICON=branding/disk.icns
>-MOZ_PKG_MAC_EXTRA=--symlink "/Applications:/ " \
>-                  --copy "$(call EXPAND_LOCALE_SRCDIR,suite/locales)/installer/mac/README.txt"

This alone is wrong, just kill the line continuation and the --copy line (we need --symlink) [Same in suite/locales/]

remove that last endif

These lines under that libs:: line you are dropping needs to be removed. these are what was "installing" the README, and I would be shocked if you didn't get Make syntax errors trying to run this makefile if you don't.

Also need to kill off installer/unix/README as well (and those directories [mac/unix, win needs to stay for other files] ;-) )

The layout of the mac installer window will now probably need some adjustment as the readme was removed...
