I want to create a new add-on install manifest using the json format. It will largely be a close 1:1 translation of
install.rdf but with less ambiguity and without some of the quirks of the awesome but ancient Netscape RDF parser.
The series of patches that will be largely if not entirely confined to
XPIProvider will have some prep work done as a Part 0 and include some refactoring of the existing logic to better accommodate the introduction of
I plan to put the RDF Parsing behind
MOZ_EM_RDF which will eventually also include the
update.rdf parsing as well. But that will be in a different issue.
This will likely require some
confdef or configure option work but I will specify that as this progresses.
