[Bug 1691324] [NEW] #PPAPI_VERSION# not set in 10-flash script


Public bug reported:

/etc/chromium-browser/customizations/10-flash sets --ppapi-flash-version to empty string.
I apologize if this is a poor description.  See discussion section after "Required information" for speculation.

Required information:

1. lsb_release -rd
Description:	Ubuntu 17.04
Release:	17.04

2. apt-cache policy adobe-flashplugin        
  Installed: 1:20170509.1-0ubuntu0.17.04.1
  Candidate: 1:20170509.1-0ubuntu0.17.04.1
  Version table:
 *** 1:20170509.1-0ubuntu0.17.04.1 500
        500 http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu zesty/partner amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

3. Expectation: /etc/chromium-browser/customizations/10-flash sets CHROMIUM_FLAGS with the appropriate flash version.  For example:
CHROMIUM_FLAGS="$CHROMIUM_FLAGS --ppapi-flash-path=$flashso --ppapi-flash-version=25.171.0.whatever"

4.  Actual result: CHROMIUM_FLAGS has flash version set to empty string.
CHROMIUM_FLAGS="$CHROMIUM_FLAGS --ppapi-flash-path=$flashso --ppapi-flash-version="

Ok, I'm not super familiar with Debian stuff, so I could be very very wrong.  I took a peek here:


And I noticed that what I think is a build script fails to set
#PPAPI_VERSION#.  When I leave this as is, it seems to disable flash on
chromium.  As a workaround, I ended up doing what it looks like the
build script essentially does, just within the script itself:

diff ~/stage/etc/chromium-browser/customizations/10-flash /etc/chromium-browser/customizations/10-flash 
> version=$(python -c 'import sys, json; print json.load(sys.stdin)["version"]' < /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/manifest.json)
< 	CHROMIUM_FLAGS="$CHROMIUM_FLAGS --ppapi-flash-path=$flashso --ppapi-flash-version="
> 	CHROMIUM_FLAGS="$CHROMIUM_FLAGS --ppapi-flash-path=$flashso --ppapi-flash-version=$version"

Anyway, hope this is useful.  Thanks for the package!
