Couldn't find Abrowser source package in the sources DVD


Abrowser is installed by default in Trisquel 7, but we couldn't find its sources in trisquel_7.0_sources.iso

However, we found in the sources DVD the source package for IceCat, which is not installed by default.

Could someone confirm this? And shouldn't be Abrowser sources in the sources DVD?

I'll look into it, it's of course very important that we provide the source for any included packages and their patches in that DVD.

Thank you, David. Were you able to confirm the issue?

Sorry for taking so long to reply.

The source for abrowser is actually there in the DVD, although it's not that obvious at first. The package firefox_33.0+build2-0ubuntu0.14.04.1+7.0trisquel32.tar.gz is the result of applying the changes from the Trisquel helper make-firefox ( ) to the upstream Ubuntu package, so compiling that source will result in the binaries shipped with the ISO.

The Icecat source is there as well because the source DVD contains all packages from all current Trisquel versions, including the one used on the FSF Membership cards (which ship Icecat by default).

In a related note, looking into this issue we've realized that the package helpers are not in the sources DVD, even if their changes are applied there, so we'll work into adding them for the next version, I'll add an issue to the tracker about it.

Thanks for reporting!
