User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:33.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/33.0 (Beta/Release) Build ID: 20140713030204 Steps to reproduce: Following instructions in https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Add-ons/SDK/Tutorials/Installation#Prerequisites to build extension for AMO from latest release tag, using git checkout 1.16 Actual results: Extension still gets rejected, based on Outdated version of Add-on SDK Warning: You are using version unknown of the Add-on SDK, which is outdated. Please upgrade to version 1.16 and repack your add-on Root cause is that addon-sdk/python-lib/cuddlefish/_version.py has this: # these strings will be replaced by git during git-archive git_refnames = "$Format:%d$" git_full = "$Format:%H$" I can see the value of using git-archive as part of the release process. Expected results: Would it be feasible to expand these values for tagged official releases of the addon-sdk? This would probably mean another commit with just the values expanded in addon-sdk/python-lib/cuddlefish/_version.py after all the testing of the release has been done.
I found a fairly simple solution: git checkout 1.16 git archive 1.16 python-lib/cuddlefish/_version.py | tar -xvf - and have updated https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Add-ons/SDK/Tutorials/Installation#Prerequisites accordingly.
