    Hi
    Not to put a dent in your effort, but distribution of binary blobs like that is frowned upon (even disallowed), plus they are not official since the come from a home repository...

    How does one know that the binary files actually come from Mozilla and have not been tampered with?

    Why are you using a google download site for these binaries?

    Likewise, you might want to review all the build log warnings if your going to build stuff and impact/break a users system...

    There is no changelog/changes file, how can an end user review what has changed?

    Agreed on all these questions. USERS BEWARE. this is a home:/ project. Do not use/trust unless the approprate changes to the repo / spec files has been made.

    Show me the official rules about it.

    _service and spec for every package will show URL of every file which used to builds. You don't need to trust me blindly - just check which sources is used.

    Why I must use the Google or another redirects: https://github.com/openSUSE/open-bui...ce/issues/3944

    About the changelogs - good idea, but Mozilla doesn't provide them.

    P.S. Tried to change the name of thread, but not allowed.
