Sorry, haven't got a clue as to where that l+31 came from...

Another bug on the pending queue is the following:
Proposal for a publicly accessible interface to the pending updates queue
<https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=427104>

I think it's amazing that there is so little on this matter on bugzilla. Do
all project owners think it's no use to file bugs of vote for existing
bugs???

Since anyone can start a new project on mozdev and projects aren't actively
reviewed here, it would be a bad idea for amo (or even mozdev) to just trust
all projects from mozdev.

A better bet might be to become a trusted add-on. I don't think the concept
of trusted add-ons is any safe, but since amo uses it, it is probably your
best bet to prevent future update problems. Unfortunately there isn't too
much info about trusted add-ons either, but I can imagine becoming trusted
involves a lot of hanging around and begging on irc ;-)
