be added to Iceweasel by the Debian maintainer. The Debian security team
might be happy to help.
- [[!tag todo/research]] Gather the maintainer's already stated
opinions on the topic: [[!debbug 609975]] and [[!debbug 653191]]
- Here's what the maintainer's already stated opinions on the
topic ([[!debbug 609975]] and [[!debbug 653191]]):
- "I'm really not a big fan of -Wl,-z,relro and -Wl,-z,now"
- "For instance, I'm not sure -z relro buys anything worth, while

applications. (and if I'm not mistaken, -z relro actually makes
things not work with selinux, seeing how selinux already breaks
the mprotect that removes the write bit on code sections after
text relocations)"

> marginal at best, anyway".
