Re: [Bug-gnuzilla] Is IceCat 24.0 secure?

I'm glad you liked the idea, Loic. I'm sure it's useful and important
and I'd like to help.

I could send you updates about the security status of Firefox. It
wouldn't be a complicated task, since Mozilla uploads all the info to
two pages [1][2].

It would just be a matter of paying attention as to when the release
of the newest Firefox version (release and ESR) takes place. That's
when they update these lists.

I'm not sure yet what would be the best way to structure the GNUzilla
versions/security page.

For example, since latest IceCat version is 24.0, when you release
IceCat 27.0.1, does it sound reasonable to add a list with all the
bugfixes from Firefox 25, 25.0.1, 26, and 27 under the title "Fixed in
IceCat 27.0.1"?

Should I send you this to your email address directly or to this list?
In HTML or plain text? I think the colors and general layout of the
aforementioned web pages are adequate. It wouldn't involve much more
than copying and pasting and replacing Firefox with IceCat, so I don't
really know if you would need my help at all.
