My opinion as maintainer is that is is safe to do so _provided_ lightspark
gets more bugs filed; ironically. Due to the nature of both the lightspark
project and Youtube (and other flash-relying websites), the combination of
both will be broken over time. This brokenness needs to be documented as bugs
in the Debian BTS for it to have a chance to be fixed.
(CC'ing debian-release@ for opinions on the following)
My main concern is that a useful lightspark will need rather frequent updates,
even in stable. I think it's better to have a semi-working not-totally-stable
free flash player than letting our users rely on Adobe's. Release Team: would
a more liberal upgrade policy be acceptable for lightspark ?
