sharing photos, etc.

Built under the Mozilla Firefox codebase.

This sound a little like marketing speak.

Perhaps some talk on the actual things it does? Why is it a social
browser?

Something like:

"Flock is a social browser and uses del.icio.us, etc."

Like, why is it a 'social' browser?

That's why I asked by collaboration by writing this:

Yeah, I know, and I repeat, description has to be improved.

Is there any progress on the Flock package?

If not, I really think we should RFP it.

Subject: Information from Flock

[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
I am following this issue for Ubuntu (
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/124933) and thought I'd share what
I've found from Flock as a result of filing a bug with them (
https://bugzilla.flock.com/show_bug.cgi?id=16384) . You can peruse the full
text there, but I'll summarize the points:

1) Both Flock and Mozilla IP exist in Sulfur, the "unbranded" Flock build.
Marcus from Flock is working on rooting this out as he has time, and
wouldn't mind the help, I'm sure.
2) Flock does not use the same XULRunner as Firefox and others, so it would
need some kind of special handling in that regard.

retitle 335459 RFP: flock -- mozilla-firefox based social web browser
noowner 335459
thanks

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of flock back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 12 months.

If you are still interested in adopting flock, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 335459 ITP: flock -- mozilla-firefox based social web browser
 owner 335459 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <335459@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
-- 
Lucas, for the QA team <debian-qa@lists.debian.org>

not that I would have used it, but browsing the WNPP I noticed flock,
which was recently in the news as it has been discontinued, therefore
closing this bug.
