Poll: Add Epiphany to the Browser Ballot?

#1

Does anyone have any interest in having Epiphany in the browser ballot in the Welcome application? A snap package was just released, so it is now provided by a repo (a requirement for us).

@fossfreedom - If people are into this - any objections?

I will create an issue to track the work if we decide to do this.


#2

No objections. Any browser added to the ballot must be well maintained and receive regular updates to resolve security issues after a ubuntu stable release


#3

The packager in this case is jbicha - super active in the Ubuntu world.


#4

I dont see any evidence of updates post release https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/epiphany-browser/+changelog - are you referring to a PPA?


#5

Nope - a snap package.

See here for an indicator. :slight_smile:


#6

ah - welcome will need to be extended to handle snaps. Would like help with that.


#7

Can do! I’ll ping you. It’s likely a useful capability for welcome to have.
