Interacting with the team
Packaging of extensions for Icedove, Iceweasel, Iceape and Iceowl (aka Thunderbird, Firefox, Seamonkey and Sunbird).
Simply get involved! The pkg-mozext-maintainers QA page and git repository are good places to start. If you're new to extension packaging send patches to the mailing list or talk to someone on IRC for review. To get commit access request to join the project via Alioth. Packages that need checking or an upload can be listed at the TODO list or on the IRC channel.
git is used as version control system. If you wish to setup a GIT branch for a new extension on our Alioth's team repository, please consider setting up IRC's CIA hooks as explained on this HowTo. Please read our git policies.
mozilla-devscripts is used for packaging
- dh 7 is recommended
dpkg-source 3.0 (quilt) format is recommended and therefore quilt as patch system
a machine-readable debian/copyright is preferred
