It would have been great if you could have coordinated the iceweasel 9
upload with the release team. From what I can see, this didn't happen
and has stalled the GNOME 3.2 transition for almost a month now which
has been very unfortunate.

At least for GNOME/gjs we are planning to use mozjs185 as soon as it has
been accepted from NEW and built on all architectures. With gjs 1.32
(the next major upstream release for GNOME 3.4) upstream has made
mozjs185 mandatory. So unless we patch gjs heavily we don't have much of
a choice anyway.
