The new flat chrome manifests are currently not usable by extensions because the manifest is overwritten while doing compatibility. This patch makes sure that we upgrade/delete/manage the chrome.manifest files in an extension properly such that extensions can include a chrome.manifest in the root of their XPI.

Comment on attachment 175345 [details] [diff] [review] Delete/extract/overwrite chrome.manifest correctly I would like a more descriptive comment than "doing the RDF thing", perhaps "generating one from contents.rdf data", but with that I am pleased to r=shaver.

Fixed on trunk. Updated documentation is at http://www.mozilla.org/projects/firefox/extensions/packaging/extensions.html I could use help spreading the word about this checkin amongst extension authors. My blog is down from having moved websites and not configured the new one yet.

I'll make a thread on MozillaZine and get a mod to sticky it. How's that?

You can have a front page MozillaZine article if you like. Just write something and send it via http://www.mozillazine.org/submit/ and I'll put it up.
