Mozdev's code is stored in the Hovercraft  project. You can access it's
The backend for secure installations mostly consists of checking download
files as they're committed to CVS and providing a UI for project owners to
verify those hashes.
There will then be a frontend that allows users to install verified,
publically released files using InstallTrigger()  through a secure site.
I'm not sure how much of this system would be reusable for other sites. This
will be available for all Mozdev projects to use once it's released.
