We would like to create a new certificate viewer for Firefox, based on modern web technologies, to replace the old one. The Certainly Something project will serve as our blueprint for that.

This bug is for tracking the work.

Johann, could you tell me if this is targetting 70? If it does, we should have a Trello card for it to keep it on our radar, Thanks.

[Tracking Requested - why for this release]:

Depends on: 1566797

One reason I ask about the release you're targeting is that if it's for 70, I'd like you to request QA (with a PI request, described here, https://mana.mozilla.org/wiki/pages/viewpage.action?spaceKey=PI&title=PI+Request)

Changing the priority to p2 as the bug is tracked by a release manager for the current nightly.
See What Do You Triage for more information

I think this feature would be just ready for release in 70, but with everything that's going on and considering that it's a non-critical path security-related intern project, I think we should give it another release of bake time and ride the trains with 71. That will give us enough time to file and perform the PI request and do some more of the required testing and due diligence.

It's not only my decision, but instead of needinfo'ing all other 4 people involved to check back with them I'll bring this up at our next meeting. :)

Thanks for reminding me!

Johann, does it need a release note in 71 beta notes?

Flags: needinfo?(jhofmann)

Release Note Request (optional, but appreciated)
[Why is this notable]: A new certificate viewer
[Affects Firefox for Android]: No
[Suggested wording]: A new Certificate Viewer that is easier to use, with more features and more detailed information.
[Links (documentation, blog post, etc)]: Danielle, you had prepared a blog post, should we move forward on getting that published?

Johann, I saved the document where we were working on the post for the blog, I could share it with all of you again and keep working on it! Danielle, what do you think?

Flags: needinfo?(jhofmann)

I think that would be great!

Just read over it again and it sounds great to me :)
