[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Hi Praveen!

I just had a look at the selenium-webdriver gem, and it looks like a
tough one. :(

For the good news: the runtime dependency on the 'websocket' gem can be
ditched easily: it's only needed for the Safari driver, which is no use
on Debian.

For the bad news: the gem cannot be used a the Debian source, it ships
with the following files that should be built from source:

  lib/selenium/webdriver/firefox/extension/webdriver.xpi
  lib/selenium/webdriver/firefox/native/linux/amd64/x_ignore_nofocus.so
  lib/selenium/webdriver/firefox/native/linux/x86/x_ignore_nofocus.so

The gem does not ship any test files either…

In any cases it looks like this gem should actually be packaged as part
of a larger 'selenium' source package that should probably build way
more packages than just 'ruby-selenium-webdriver'…

Cheers,

thanks for this observation.

ah! that's going to be a tough task. Feel free to try, or I'll come
back to it later. May be these are built as part of bigger selenium
package will have to find out.

I have requested upstream to include it in gem
http://code.google.com/p/selenium/issues/detail?id=5368

Probably. My interest is to get the ruby part packaged for now, if
anyone want the remaining part they could try it.

Don't raise your hopes. The application I'd like to see in Debian
(Coquelicot) is currently fully tested using Capybara's :rack_test
driver. My interest in getting Selenium::WebDriver packaged is currently
fairly low.

The firefox extension is built using vcxproj files. May be
vcproj2cmake [1] needs packaging first. I will see if there is any
upstream documentation for building in linux, may be later.
