To allow mozcrash to output more information about the crash, the .extra file as stored beside each minidump file should be parsed. Doing that additional information could be displayed in the log files which will help developers to better understand the reason of the crash.
The new code would have to be added to the following file:
Note that we're switching the .extra file format to JSON in bug 1420363. I expect the changes to land by the end of the month so I suggest postponing this until we're done with that.
That sounds great. So yes, lets wait until that change has landed. Thanks!
