I am on Jessie+ backports.
If I add your multimedia repo, will I be able to use Firefox > 52 even if it will not exist in the backports due to the rust compiler being absent in Jessie and backports?
I am afraid to mess up my system so, if I am OK with my seasoned multimedia, can I use your repo in a backports style: e.g. I install only firefox from it and update only firefox and its dependencies?
Firefox won't require rustc to build until version 54, I think. I believe we can still use the compiled binary directly from Mozilla, even for versions >= 54, on Jessie. We bundle that into a deb file anyway for the MX packages--I could start doing that when the next updates come out.
Also, Firefox is in a separate OBS repo than my multimedia stuff, since it doesn't really have much to do with multimedia. However, I'll add apulse to the Firefox repo, remove the firefox 52.0 package, and add the firefox-esr 52.0.1 package with the fix for alsa, since it patches a security hole. I'll change the version so it will be seen as an upgrade. Edit: The firefox-esr from mozilla.debian.net already has alsa re-enabled, so I recommend that one for the moment.
