mozilla-central contains code vendored from external sources. Currently
there is no standard way to document and update this code. In order to
facilitate automation around auditing, vendoring, and linting we intend
to require all vendored code to be annotated with an in-tree YAML file,
and for the vendoring process to be standardised and automated.
The plan is to create a YAML file for each library containing metadata
such as the homepage url, vendored version, bugzilla component, etc. See
https://goo.gl/QZyz4xfor the full specification.
We will work with teams to add moz.yaml files where required, as well as
adding the capability for push-button vendoring of new revisions.
