Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Ximin Luo <infinity0@gmx.com>

I intend to package this as part of the pkg-mozext group.

* Package name    : cookiesafe-lite
  Version         : 1.4
  Upstream Author : csdev https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/user/7045/
* URL             : https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/cs-lite/
* License         : GPL-2
  Programming Lang: Javascript
  Description     : Control which websites have permission to set cookies.

This extension will allow you to easily control cookie permissions. It can be
accessed from the statusbar, a toolbar button, or the context menu. Just click
on the icon to allow, block, or temporarily allow the site to set cookies.
You can also view, clear or edit the cookies and exceptions by right clicking
on the cs lite icon.

This is a lighter, scaled down version of CookieSafe. It contains less
features, but is considerably easier to use. The extension has been completely
recoded from top to bottom making this the most stable version to date.

We've been shipping CS Lite in Tails for a while [0] and I'm glad
someone acknowledges the lack of such a cookie manager in Debian.

  [0] http://tails.boum.org/

On the other hand, last time I checked, CS Lite 1.4 was unmaintained
and not compatible with FF4+. The mozilla review page [1] shows users
have been sharing patches for months to more or less fix CS Lite,
without any visible action from upstream. This makes me doubt CS Lite
is worth uploading to the Debian archive. Did I miss something?

  [1] https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/cs-lite/reviews/

Due to these reasons, I've filed a RFP bug (#623970) asking for Cookie
Monster [2] to be packaged for Debian. I've been using it for a few
months and am happy with it. It works pretty well with Iceweasel 5.

  [2] https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4703/

Another option that could satisfy those needs is CookieFast [3].
I've not tried it and it seems a bit too fresh (only one upstream
release so far) to be sure upstream will actually maintain it on the
long run, though.

  [3] https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/cookiefast/

What do you think?

ok i'll look into this. seems there is already a package for it, i'll have a
play with that.

one advantage is that cs-lite has, is a load more localisations than
cookie-monster. so it might be worth including it in debian for the near future
at least, especially since i've already done the packaging for it. (your email
came too late to stop me :p)

I see.

What do you mean by "the near future", especially wrt. Wheezy release?

(
If cs-lite makes it into Wheezy, we'll have to support it for a few
years, which is quite a big near future.
If cs-lite is not intended to go into Wheezy, I doubt it's a good idea
to push it into sid: it seems to me the purpose of sid is to prepare
the next Debian release, not to be a storage area for temporary
packages.

cs-lite has been stable for several years now with no major bugs reported that
i can see on the review page.

afaics sid is pretty ad-hoc, e.g. http://packages.debian.org/sid/wine-unstable

we can decide whether to let it propagate to wheezy after it's been around in
sid for a while. i don't think it does any harm letting people try it out.

I'm not concerned with current bugs in cs-lite.
I'm concerned with compatibility with future Iceweasel releases,
which has not been taken care of upstream in the last two years.

As long as the only change needed to have it working with newer
Iceweasel is bumping maxVersion, which you've been doing it seems,
so far so good, all systems green :)

The question is: who will update cs-lite if more changes are needed?

Once this matter is clarified, once I know who's in charge,
I'll certainly be very happy to see cookiesafe-lite in Debian.

experimental might be better suited if you don't want it to migrate to
testing automatically. If it were uploaded to unstable, you'd have to
create a placeholder RC bug just to prevent it from migrating, which
looks like an ugly piggy-back of the Debian suites and release process
to me.

if this problems happens we'll deal with it then. the worse that will happen is
we drop it from debian. it's not as if this package affects anything else.

then maybe we should just let it auto-migrate into wheezy. all that matters is
that the cs-lite version in wheezy works with the iceweasel version in wheezy.

i don't understand your reluctance of having this package in debian. there is
pretty much no maintenance cost - it's stable, unlikely to be buggy, and we can
always drop it. if/when that becomes necessary, cookie-monster will probably
have enough locales in that we can just tell people to switch to that.

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of cookiesafe-lite 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 cookiesafe-lite, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 636399 ITP: cookiesafe-lite -- Control which websites have permission to set cookies.
 owner 636399 !
 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 <636399@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
