FS#1097 - Port Iceape to UXP platform

Historically, Iceape was a re-branding of Seamonkey by the Debian project, with minimal modifications, in order to resolve branding disputes.

As of December 2013 , Iceape was no longer being maintained by the Debian project and users were encouraged to migrate to other alternatives for security patches.

However, since Seamonkey is being maintained from Thunderbird source and Hyperbola is porting Icedove to UXP platform , it could be built on the UXP platform which contains multiple security and privacy improvements.

TODO list:

  • Change Iceape-UXP logo typeface from the non-free “Libertad Book” to free “DejaVU Sans”.
  • Rename Iceape to Iceape-UXP in logo typeface.
  • Check “Seamonkey” remaining references.
  • Fix/adapt to UXP-based applications. (eg. MOZ_APP_VERSION=52.9.`date –utc ‘+%Y%m%d’`)

Final testing phase, this application has been successfully ported.

I do like this idea, but it doesn't seem nearly as important as iceweasel and icedove. But that is my opinion.

Do what you can handle, don't overload yourselves. :)
