Hmm, let's tag it 'sarge' instead unless someone shows otherwise.

We're now down to 1 RC bug it seems, but this is still outstanding. I had
heard from other members of the release team that an upload was expected
this weekend, but that appears not to have happened. Since there seems to
be a consensus that iceweasel should not ship /usr/lib/firefox, and this bug
blocks a significant fraction of the remaining RC bugfixes for etch, I'm
going to go ahead with preparing an NMU for this against the current

Unfortunately this RC bugfix upload was a new upstream version with an
extensive diff, and the new version FTBFS on alpha with a timeout where the
old version did not. I'm still in the process of determining if this is a
regression in xulrunner, or if it's a regression in the toolchain since the
last time xulrunner was built on alpha.
