After last few days, and many more occasions that make all sites containing
the word "Moz" unreachable every time on some Moz related release, I decided
to host my own cvs and website for sitebarsidebar.
This does not mean I will abonden Mozdev and I hope that in the future I can
move stuff back to the Mozdev server, mainly because sitebarsidebar is a open
source XUL application as most on here and has the largest audience on
Also I keep the Mozdev style for the site, for now i have a redirect to my
The reason for this is that i find our small project too important to be
unreachable every time something important happens to Mozilla.
I always imagine the Mozilla followers and slashdotters as the Belgiums from
the Asterix & Obelix cartoon, when they crossed your path then all people can
only clean up and hope they wont pass again very soon... ;-)
Also i stay on this maillist as I am positive about it after this time, my

changed now to very positive. (thanks for all help to all)
I have a question about update.mozilla.org.

Thus we don't have a physical xpi file. (if you can speak about physical in
this virtual world)
Is it posible to put a redirect to it on the updates list on
And if yes, what are the steps to do that?
Last question, when does the system where extensions are signed goes into
working for Firefox?
And what are the requirements to sign? A by mozilla issued certificate?
