Nice though it was to get going with the work around I do think that a lot of what Peter has said else where is worth looking at. Thats not to say I don't appluad Paul's efforts on the web page and more formal instructions but it is a sticking plaster not a total fix.

I think that Graham Shaw's attempt at packaging should be supported and it would be nice to get some sorted of co-ordinated approach to developers.

I and the newly formed MUG group witnessed the ability of Graham's packaging software when he recently was our guest speaker and though Graham admits it could do with some development it is a start. Sure you are going to have people that want to delve in to the inards of anything but as a product becomes more of a general consumer item you need to have the ability to structure things and make it easy. I'm sure that if some of the effort that goes in to doing "workarounds" was more focussed on fixing the underlying issues then RISC OS would be a lot better.

On the development front MUG are considering what we can do as a group or part of the wider RISC OS user group network to help focus development in areas that are needed.

Finally I must again say thanks to Peter for his efforts in trying to being such a universally supported packages like Firefox and Thunderbird to our platform. The publicity for that alone must assist in getting people interested in RISC OS and possibly RISC OS development.
