Package: mozilla-devscripts
Version: 0.47
Severity: wishlist
Tags: help


I'm filing this bug to track discussion of support for packaging
WebExtensions.  It's not yet clear that we will need a packaging helper
at all, but if we do, it makes sense to fold support into
mozilla-devscripts, so I'm filing the bug against that package.

This bug will become release-critical when every version of Firefox in
unstable is greater than or equal to 57, assuming Mozilla's plans do not
change.  For now, it's a feature request.

Previous discussions:
