With plug-ins do you mean things like Flashblock and NoScript, which are add-ons in Mozilla/Firefox parlance (also called extensions), or a piece of software which uses the Netscape plugin framework, like the VLC Media Player plugin?

System Group Name:

  Official GNU software

  GNU General Public License V2 or later

Other License:

  The GNUzilla Project is the GNU/Linux 'Free Software' version of the ever popular Mozilla.org Source Code.  (http://mozilla.org/source.html)

With the 'ever-increasing' popularity of the new Mozilla.org 'FireFox' Web Browser, GNUzilla will provide the 'GNU/Linux' version of same, to be dubbed 'IceWeasel' as the First stage of our GNU/Linux - Mozilla Source Code Compilation Integration merging.  (http://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-1.0.6&os=linux&lang=en-US)

Mozilla.org has moved towards the development of it's Web Browser 'FireFox', and its news and email Application 'Thunderbird', much to the detriment of the  'Mozilla Applicatiion Suite'.  The 'Suite' will now be developed under Project name 'SeaMonkey', outside mozilla.org.  (http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/seamonkey/nightly/)

Upon completion of GNUzilla's First Program Development (IceWeasel), we will secondly move right into the development of GNU/Linux version of 'SeaMonkey' (Suite) we shall dub 'LessZilla'.

ALL GNUzilla Programs will basically BE Mozilla Source Builds, with the major exception being the implementation of NO proprietary softwares, including plug-ins, according and adhereing to the GPL.

Other Software Required:

The Plug-in dependencies are yet to be determined as I will test which 'free software' alternatives work best for desired end result.

Other Comments:
  This Project is already approved and appointed to me as Maintainer by Richard Stallman.  <rms@gnu.org>

My mentor, Karl Berry <karl@freefriends.org>, has graciously offered to assist in this endeavor, as I learn GNU/Savannah Processes.

Please list Richard Stallman and Karl Berry (if acceptable to each gentleman) as major Contributors to this Project GNUzilla.
