Shouldn't Firefox be a Cindy version?

Post by axisofevil » Tue Sep 18, 2018 1:07 pm

Out of curiosity, I was comparing the apt and apt-get ways of presenting information:-
apt policy firefox
firefox:
Installed: 60.2.0esr~linuxmint1+betsy
Candidate: 60.2.0esr~linuxmint1+betsy
Version table:
*** 60.2.0esr~linuxmint1+betsy 700
700 http://mintlinux.mirror.wearetriple.com/packages cindy/upstream amd64 Packages
100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
apt-cache policy firefox gives the same information.

But why is a Betsy version of firefox installed?

The Mint-team created no Cindy-specific package of Firefox. There's no reason for that if both releases can match the required dependencies.
