Yes, as I consulted that section in Policy, I CC'd all of these messages
to pkg-mozilla-maintainers list. I haven't received any response about
it yet.

Explaining the topic here again:
* firefox-branding-iceweasel (Binary: xul-ext-iceweasel-branding), the
package to restore Iceweasel experience, did not provide a correctly
branded desktop icon as of the version 0.2.3 (now in testing).
* I've written a new version that substitutes the two .desktop files
from firefox(-esr) with Iceweasel ones to complete the rebranding, using
dpkg-divert.
* Since the use of dpkg-divert requires attention from the affected
maintainers, I'd like Mozilla packages maintainers to check the package.
Any piece of advice is welcome.

Git repository at pkg-mozext:
https://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/pkg-mozext/iceweasel-branding.git/

I intend to submit this for stable-release-update.

Thanks,
nord-stream
