[Bug 1446888] [NEW] No manifest.json in adobe-flashplugin


Public bug reported:

Would it be possible to include the manifest.json file which contains
version information and such for the Pepper Flash? adobe-
flashplugin_20150414.1.orig.tar.gz already contains the file, so it
should be theoretically almost no additonal effort to extract that file
and place it in /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/ along with

It would be useful for wonderful projects like freshplayerplugin (PPAPI-
NPAPI adapter primarily used for getting the newest version of Adobe
Flash Player in browsers which refuse to or are unable to implement
PPAPI support), for which this bug is the only thing left preventing a
perfect user experience:

This proposed addition would not break anything, not increase the
package size by any significant amount (manifest.json being a text
file,) and it would be useful.
