Comment 1 Arvid Requate univentionstaff 2014-11-05 18:59:15 CET
I removed the legacy package "firefox" from the list of alternative dependencies specified by univention-mozilla-firefox. In my update tests this resulted in firefox getting replaced by firefox-en. I added a changelog entry for this.
Comment 2 Felix Botner univentionstaff 2014-11-06 10:06:34 CET
I get 

The following packages have been kept back:
  db4.8-util  univention-mozilla-firefox

so apt-get keeps firefox installed. Is that ok?
Comment 3 Arvid Requate univentionstaff 2014-11-06 19:01:33 CET
I added a pre-update to preup.sh.
Comment 4 Felix Botner univentionstaff 2014-11-07 10:23:58 CET
OK - update without firefox
OK - update with firefox

OK - Changelog
