yep, as soon as there is a working svn branch, I'll be able to inject the gg
code into FF3 quite easily (xulrunner-1.9 --install-app /path/to/.xpi_file)

I've been testing on both FF3 and browse, with tomeu's help...

According to the comments on the svn trunk, they say they fixed this error
for linux... so I guess it is broken, and the google gears guys know it
exists, but aren't testing their fixes entirely... because I downloaded the
latest trunk and the exact one that contains the linux fix comment, and the
break is in the same place as before...

This I have done, and was using in order to create the spec file... but
there are many files missing in the svn trunk build... so wait for the
google gears devs we must...

wow... this has been quite a journey... I'll make sure I document the
procedure so hopefully it will help others wanting to create plugins for
browse and FF3 as rpms...
