We now have a project overview page that allows secure installation of files
that are registered as extensions (.xpi files with install.rdf manifests).

If you would like to help us test this out, the procedure for adding a
publically released, verified file goes like this:

1) Upload an extension to your project in the downloads/ directory.  Be sure 
to
compute a sha1 or md5 hash and save it for later.
Your extension (if not previously shown) will show up on the application page 
under the correct supported app:
http://www.mozdev.org/projects/applications.html

2) Login to Mozdev.org's file management and release your new file and verify 
the hash (md5 or sha1 is determined automatically): [link]

3) Browse to your project overview and see your extension list collapsed with 
the new version linked to: [links]


We plan on linking to the project overview page from lists that are generated
on www.mozdev.org so that it's easier for users to find all relevant links for
a project.

Please contact me off-list if you are interested in helping test this
out and I will get you the proper URLs to test at.

Please see bug#17302 [1] for more details;
