Yes, it's quite weird. Though as I said, if the AUR maintainer can
somehow come to some agreement with them about applying some pretty
basic fixes like a bunch of upstream Mozilla patches, then this whole
issue could just disappear on its own, which would be nice.

This does assume someone is interested in actually discussing things
with the palemoon team which doesn't seem to be a fun prospect at all,
due to lack of reciprocation.

But I'm not fundamentally opposed to leaving this a trademark dispute,
where I expect it to die as -ENOT_IN_VIOLATION.
