 Let me put it this way: if I get a bug report that says "foobar 0.2 came
 out this morning" its only effect will be to delay the release of a 
 debian package by at least a couple of days.  OTOH, if it says "foobar
 0.2 is been out for a couple of months now" you'll probably get a friendly
 message thanking you for the reminder and possibly a package within 24

 In other words: stop pestering Myth about a new mozilla package unless
 you want to have a package next year.
