[meta] Ship developer tools as an add-on - Move developer tools to github
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1_cl1ZtcS7zFy4JTmh4ShqaVl0HHnXrN2oHBcJMgN6lU/edit?ts=5886398e#heading=h.kft9zibe60g5 In order to release faster updates of DevTools to web developers, we have to quit mozilla-central which is tightly related to Firefox train release cycle. So most of /devtools/ folder is going to be moved to its own github repository. Then, we need a new release mechanism if we are not following Firefox release cycle. We are planning to use an Add-on to ship the tools to web developers. There will still be a "shim" in mozilla-central/Firefox. That, to automatically install this add-on whenever the user intend to use the tools. This bug is a meta bug for all that. Note that many things can be landed early, before we actually execute this move. We should first ensure that Firefox still works (no error, green tests) if we happen to remove devtools codebase.
