Bug#608171: ITP: kmozillahelper -- Iceweasel-KDE integration

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: "P. J. McDermott" <pjm@nac.net>

* Package name    : kmozillahelper
  Version         : 0.6.2
  Upstream Author : Lubos Lunak <l.lunak@suse.cz>
* URL             : https://build.opensuse.org/package/show?package=mozilla-kde4-integration&project=mozilla%3AFactory
* License         : Expat
  Programming Lang: C++
  Description     : Iceweasel-KDE integration

This is an integration helper, designed to make Iceweasel work better in KDE
SC 4.

This application handles integration in the following areas:
    * Getting proxy configuration
    * Getting default applications by file extension, type, and protocol
    * The "Open with:" dialog
    * The file open dialog
    * The file save dialog, with KIO network transparency
    * The directory selection dialog
    * Opening files with default applications
    * Running applications
    * Opening the default feed reader
    * Opening the default mail client
    * Opening the default news client
    * Checking and setting the default web browser
    * Showing KDE notifications on download completions

This helper application is developed for and shipped with the openSUSE
distribution.  It is packaged for and included in Ubuntu.  There is also a
package for it in the Arch User Repository and a Git repository to port it to
Fedora.  This application appears to be the most complete, "correct", and
widely-supported solution to improving Mozilla Firefox's behavior in KDE.

Upstream development is visible at the following Git repository:

Status of this package:
I actually have the packaging work mostly done and lintian clean; it just needs
mentor review (as I'm not a DD or DM).  However, a patch to Iceweasel (mostly
XUL and XPCOM shell service files to work with KDE "the right way") is necessary
for this package to work.
