[Bug 222859] continue to port and maybe package www/firefox 56.x for some time after 57 is released

            Bug ID: 222859
           Summary: continue to port and maybe package www/firefox 56.x
                    for some time after 57 is released
           Product: Ports & Packages
           Version: Latest
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Some People
          Priority: ---
         Component: Individual Port(s)
          Assignee: [hidden email]
          Reporter: [hidden email]
             Flags: maintainer-feedback?([hidden email])
          Assignee: [hidden email]

Expect:

* <http://www.freshports.org/www/firefox> to step from 56.x to 57.0; and
* <http://www.freshports.org/www/firefox-esr> to remain at 52.x

– and remain at 52.x for a limited period as defined at
<https://wiki.mozilla.org/RapidRelease/Calendar#Future_branch_dates>

Issue
=====

The limitation to 52.x will be troublesome for users whose workflows require,
or will require:

* a greater version of Firefox
* but not 57.

Cross reference
===============

1406737 - ESR: extended support for a Firefox 56.x release
<https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1406737>

– expect more rationale under that Mozilla bug.

Thanks

--- Comment #1 from Graham Perrin <[hidden email]> ---
Mozilla bug 1406737 for ESR is RESOLVED WONTFIX, so my hopes shift to the
FreeBSD side of things.

From 1406737:

> tl;dr I expect to use 56.x until the August 2018 release of 62.

If you'd like a summary rationale here, just say.

(Rationales are _very_ widely spread across Mozilla areas.)

To Jan and others with a possible interest: I never maintained a port (I'm not
a developer) but for Firefox 56.x, I'm willing to learn.

To complement what's documented –
<https://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/porters-handbook/> and so on
– I'll almost certainly need occasional hand-holding in IRC.

Just a thought …
