Hi everyone, as you might know, Firefox is moving away from traditional Gecko extensions, towards WebExtensions which are essentially the same as Chrome extensions.
WebExtensions don't need an install.rdf manifest. In fact the documentation indicates that is has been deprecated as part of legacy extensions . Still, I would have to create an install.rdf, just so that I can use install-xpi. However, it is much simpler, and probably not any less appropriate than relying on deprecated mechanisms, to simple use debian/install and debian/links files, in order to achieve the same result, as I did here . But I wonder whether this is the way how Firefox extensions are supposed to be packaged in the future. Otherwise, mozilla-devscripts would have to be updated, in order to support WebExtensions properly, unless I miss something. Also I wonder whether it still makes sense to package Firefox and Chromium extensions separately, if the the only difference is either a symlink in /usr/share/mozilla/extensions/ or a script with one line in /etc/chromium.d. : https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Add-ons/Install_Manifests : https://github.com/snoack/mypass/tree/master/debian _______________________________________________ Pkg-mozext-maintainers mailing list Pkgemail@example.com http://lists.alioth.debian.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/pkg-mozext-maintainers
