I thought that I had replied to the previous message (to Jérémy)
saying that I did want to have that extension in Debian (mostly
because I value more the GPG chain/web-of-trust that we built than
downloading an extension from some site).

And, to be honest, the programs that I uploaded to my PPA are really
meant to be *Debian* packages, as that's what I use directly. The
side-effect of benefiting those that use Ubuntu is just a result of

Great. How do you want me to package it?

Thanks for the offer.

OK, great to have some improvements already to the released version. I
think that, in general, almost all, if not all, xulrunner applications
can benefit from https-everywhere.

As I am only a Debian maintainer, I don't have permission to write to
your repositories, but if you could add me (my alioth username is
rbrito-guest), that would be cool.

I don't know if you have any preferences/standards, but I like to use
the following workflow with my packages:


I hope that you like that.
