  • gozala: tinderbox is reporting an error on Firefox nightly builds. we should have a bug for this


  • dietrich gave an update on the project to deliver new Firefox features as add-ons. Recent discussions focused on which of these should land in Firefox and which should stay add-ons. Some use the SDK heavily, some only use it as a loader. It's instructive to see the different ways people can use Jetpack. Why do some add-ons work better with Jetpack than others? Understanding this will help the SDK team make the SDK more suitable for heavy-duty add-on development. Dietrich welcomes the Jetpack team to attend the meetings!
  • Share is planning to land in moz-central
  • pdf.js, browserid, are up in the air at the moment
  • also talking about getting the SDK itself landed into the Firefox (possibly as an add-on itself?) Drew Willcoxon wrote up a proposal for this, which you can read here:
