The people in #fsf said that the work flow page (gnuzilla.gnu.org) for IceCat 
is better suited as you first suggested.

However, there is no Wiki for GNU packages, I'll suggest the FSF to consider if 
that should be added in a related task that I initiated for them.

all cases I make use of distro's package manager to install already
built and published binaries.

Anyway, "build recipes" is another good idea for FSF directory.

I think a Wiki is needed to document some help about Gnuzilla/Icecat.
For example at: gnuzilla.gnu.org

I like your idea a lot, but directory.fsf.org would be even better in my

We can even start a new "Build recipes" project in
to make it easier for all free distros to package popular software.

Adonay, what do you think about it?

Brian Durant has recently asked for well-working Icecat in Devuan
GNU/Linux 1, and I'd like to publish my recipe for this.

Due to my usual massive GNU/Linux installations, I use Peinddd to
automate a lot of application installations and optimal configurations,
and I have specific recipes to install Icecat on:
Ubuntu 8.04
Ubuntu 9.10
Ubuntu 10.04
Ubuntu 10.10
Ubuntu 11.04
Ubuntu 11.10
Ubuntu 12.04
Ubuntu 12.10
Ubuntu 13.04
Ubutnu 13.10
Ubuntu 14.04
Ubuntu 16.04
Debian 7
Debian 8
Debian 9
Devuan 1
Raspbian 8

This includes MIME associations and default webbrowser when needed.
But it's hard to write a custom-made recipe for a single asking; better
if it can be published and linked to people who asks for the procedure.
