hey debian mozilla folks--
i am looking into packaging the firefox/iceweasel plugin "Collusion"
, and while reviewing the source, i came across the "Add-on SDK" ,
which seems to be a preferred paradigm for writing more modular and
secure firefox extensions.
This might be old news to some of you, but it was news to me :)
I don't see the Add-on SDK in debian at the moment -- is this something
that people think should be packaged for debian? Does it belong under
the aegis of pkg-mozext-maintainers?
For extensions like Collusion, which appear to include chunks of the
add-on SDK source, should we be distributing this separately to avoid
embedded code copies?
I don't see any currently-packaged extension that embeds part of the
add-on sdk, but there appears to be several reasons to encourage
extensions to move in this direction .
