Package: xul-ext-https-finder
Version: 091-1
Severity: serious
Tag: sid stretch

[Filled as RC by a team member to see it autoremoved from testing if
 nobody disagrees. Please, do downgrade it with an explanation if you


The following seem to explain well enough the current situation:

> It seems this add-on has been abandoned, considering the lack of
> update and the unanswered issues opened both here and on Google Code.
> I assume the author just doesn't have time to develop it anymore,
> which is why it was removed from the Addons website. Either by the
> author or automatically because it stopped working with the latest
> version of Firefox.
> It's too bad, it's a fairly useful extension.


If the situation doesn’t change, there is a priori little point shipping
it in the next stable release (Stretch). It may even stop being useful
in the current stable release (Jessie) since iceweasel is being updated
to more recent LTS versions once they become available (thus the current
tags may soon be useless).

I intend to follow up with an RM request in a few months if nobody
objects, ditto for Jessie if this add-on stop being useful (but feel
free to beat me to it).
