I looked at the .xpi you sent me and I noticed this:


Is there any special reason why the langpack should work exactly on 3.5?
I think that it is a too strict requirement, why it shouldn't work on
3.5.1 or  I don't know if Firefox langpacks do the same, but it
seems a bit strange to me.

Anyway, I am going to change the versioning scheme for IceCat, I'll
remove the -gN suffix, we were using it to have more releases based on
the same Firefox version, but it never happened in reality.  IMO, drop
the suffix is better than introduce new changes in the library to handle
it or don't work with so many addons.
