+1. I'd like to see a decision made soon on whether you will provide
-unstable or not. My xulrunner unstable dependent package (mozvoikko)
has been broken in Rawhide for a few days now, I'd like to know which
will be the best way to fix it.

Okay, what about this:

- all packages should switch to unified mozilla package config files, libxul-embedding.pc & libxul.pc. Old libxul-embedding-unstable.pc & libxul-unstable.pc will be provided for compatibility.

- packages built against unfrozen interfaces will keep BuildRequire: gecko-devel-unstable. It helps mozilla team to decide which packages should be rebuild in update.

You may identify frozen (stable) interface by:

- at http://www.mozilla.org/projects/embedding/EmbedInterfaceFreeze.html
- at sources - look for "@status" string in appropriate idl file (in /usr/share/idl/xulrunner-sdk-1.9.2), all frozen interfaces have status "FROZEN" there.

Recently, a few F12 packages (looks like browser plug-ins only) are built against frozen (stable) interface [1] and all others require unstable interface.
