Yes, Lars has stated his intention to completely remove this rendering engine. To do so, I'd assume the right way to go would be to turn -gtkhtml into a dummy package that pulls -xulrunner in. In that case, the separate liferea-xulrunner package would be rather pointless, as liferea would just pull it inconditionally. Should both packages be just merged into one? Would *that* be too much of a change to get into etch? -- Rodrigo Gallardo GPG-Fingerprint: 7C81 E60C 442E 8FBC D975 2F49 0199 8318 ADC9 BC28 Zenophobia: the irrational fear of convergent sequences.
