Description (last modified by tlucas)


With #5751 and #5752, we drop support, for the gecko and safari build targets, from buildtools. While new versions of buildtools no longer need to be able to build extensions for these target platforms, sitescript currently relies on functionality provided by buildtools in order to extract metadata of these legacy extensions from the development builds.

We can defer this dependency update until we can drop the development builds of legacy Gecko extensions, which is as soon as Firefox 57 is released. However, we cannot drop development builds for Safari as soon, see ticket:5752#comment2.

What to change

  • Remove support for development builds of legacy Gecko extension.
  • Change the target of gecko development build from gecko-webext to gecko
  • Move the Safari-related code, previously imported from buildtools, to sitescripts.
  • Update the buildtools dependency to:
mercurial git
