And, don't forget, we still have a package named firefox-beta. If we stick
with FF10, then some day we will come to a situation of firefox-10.0.4 and
firefox-beta-15b1 for Mageia 2, which is unacceptable. Or, we should make
an exception on firefox-beta, it should be obsoleted by updated firefox for
stable distros.

>> * For released distros, we always update it till next ESR. i.e., for

>> 11.0. If time passed, we will go directly 10.0.x to 17.0 ESR.
>> * For xulrunner, we always use latest ESR version for cauldron and
