Cores with scriptable components
From Brendan's Architectural meeting notes: 2.2 AppCores (http://lxr.mozilla.org/seamonkey/find?string=AppCore) should be superceded by XPIDL-declared scriptable components. Alecf is leading the way, everyone agrees on the goal, so I'm closing this as an architecture action; bugzilla can handle any implementation problems. This item is important because there is no mechanism for securing access to AppCores, only to scriptable components.
reassigning to scc
Needed for beta security. cc'ing jevering as per our meeting today
*** Bug 9615 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
No visible effect to users. Not dogfood.
Not dogfood, but some solution is needed for beta to close the security holes.
re-prioritizing to M12, as warranted by security concerns. Thanks norris.
don sez law has this almost fixed. /be
Summary: Replace AppCores with scriptable components → [DOGFOOD] Replace AppCores with scriptable components
No "appcores" are utilized nowadays. I'm holding changes to actually remove the mozilla/xpfe/AppCores directory from the build so I'm leaving this bug open till that happens.
Move this to M13 since it's not a dogfood issue.
giving me rest of phillips open qa contact bugs, sorry for spam
Summary: [DOGFOOD] Replace AppCores with scriptable components → Replace AppCores with scriptable components
Whiteboard: [PDT-]Help Wanted
Target Milestone: M13 → M15
Not required for beta 1.
Actually, XPAppCoresManager isn't defined anymore in the namespace of web scripts, so the security bugs that depend on this have been resolved. Did XPAppCoresManager just get renamed, since this bug is still open?
No, all the appcores stuff is no longer used. It is still built because I haven't checked in all the makefile/script tweaks to remove it. This bug is waiting for that to happen (which I really should get around to...).
Well, i nuked appcores and associated resources on the Mac, god help me.

Move to M16 for now ...
Target Milestone: M15 → M16
Should this bug be closed - or is work still required for Windows?
Looks like sspitzer did the honors on win32 and unix Feb 05 2000 e.g. http://bonsai.mozilla.org/cvslog.cgi?file=mozilla/xpfe/Makefile.in http://bonsai.mozilla.org/cvslog.cgi?file=mozilla/xpfe/Makefile.in and xpfe/AppCores is no longer in the tree. I'd say it's done, but perhaps there is something else I'm not aware of, so...
Yes, this can be closed now. It just never had a high enough priority to even appear on any of the queries I've been working from, sad to say.
