I can't find the location for update.rdf in the recommendations on  docs |
Only page I find on updates and releases is
which does not say anything on the location of update.rdf.

I've also searched in mozilla docs, and in Install Manifests -
does say that the content-type for
update.rdf must be either text/rdf or text/xml, but with
extensions.logging.enabled and using Find update for my project, I see it
getting the rdf info and ending with a status 8 all the time, so it seems
that application/vnd.mozilla.xul+xml also works. Haven't verified the source
in nsExtensionManager.js though.

Maybe mozdev and mozilla docs need some clarification on the matter...
