Jetpack/Features

From MozillaWiki

Jump to: navigation, search


Jetpack Features is a working group exploring the feasibility of shipping core Firefox features as default addons built with the Add-on SDK. It is open to all Mozilla community members with an interest in and aptitude for the subject.

Principles

We think Jetpack is a better way to develop many Firefox features.

  1. Its modularity, both at the feature level and internally, through its use of standards-based JavaScript modules, makes it easier for contributors to get started, get up-to-speed on the codebase, make progress, and share code with other projects.
  2. It causes Firefox developers to eat their own dogfood, encouraging the growth and sustenance of a robust, first-class addon platform.
  3. It enables Firefox features to be built and enabled selectively, giving distributors and users more options for customizing the browser to better meet user needs.

Discussions

Group discussions happen in two places:

Meetings

The group used to meet every other week on a regular schedule via audio/video conferencing to discuss progress and identify next steps, but it no longer does so.

When it met, the meeting facilitator announced upcoming meetings in the dev.planning discussion forum and posted notes for each meeting—including an agenda, a list of attendees, and minutes—to this page.

The meeting details were:

  • Time: every other week, Fridays 9:05 - 9:50am PT (17:05 - 17:50 UTC; 16:05 - 16:50 UTC during US DST)
  • Audio/Video: Jetpack Vidyo room
  • Audio Only:
