Hallo!

First of all, let me state this e-mail is not intended to apportion
blame on anyone.

With Firefox ESR version 38.3 being released some days ago and IceCat
still basing on version 31.8 with only some patches backported, I think
there is urgent need for a statement clarifying the intention of IceCat.
On the website it is said that IceCat's main advantage is an ethical
one, in such that it is free. Written below this, some privacy enhancing
features are listed.

This is misleading and dangerous. One could think that using IceCat will
enhance your privacy. Having a version with well documented security
bugs for months now definitely is clearly proving the opposite. So as
first step it is necessary to make a clarifying statement on the website
that using IceCat exposes you to significant risk and it should not be
used on productive systems. Then it should be decided how IceCat can go
on in future, which is its purpose and how it can be achieved. But for
the time, in my opinion, the stated goal of IceCat is not in line with
reality.

Best regards,
Dimitris
