Description Dominique Leuenberger 2016-06-17 09:51:51 UTC
Since the update to GCC6, openSUSE:Factory/xulrunner fails to build
Comment 1 Wolfgang Rosenauer 2016-06-17 10:39:46 UTC
Can someone confirm if xulrunner is not required for other packages anymore?

wolfi@Hygiea:/local/build/mozillafactory/xulrunner> osc whatdependson openSUSE:Factory xulrunner standard x86_64
xulrunner :

If I did it correctly then it has no leafs anymore and it's time to drop it from Tumbleweed.
xulrunner code was removed from mozilla tree with latest Gecko 47.0. We could in worst case try to keep the 45.0esr branch alive for another 6-9 months but if we can drop it safely right now it would be preferred.
Comment 2 Dominique Leuenberger 2016-06-17 10:43:55 UTC
That assessment seems right...

I can't find any package that still build depends on xulrunner (using osc whatdependson) or has a requires at runtime on any package built (using the detail view page on each rpm in OBS).

Sounds like a good moment to drop it
