As an additional protection measure, we want to be able to downgrade the extension maxversion setting based on the settings from the update server. This means that whenver the extension version gets changed, we need to check with the update server for every extension, not just the extensions that are obviously incompatible. Please let me know how hard you think this is and whether you think this is unfeasible for the 1.8 cycle... it affects some decisions we are making about how we plan to version firefox 1.5.x.
This would be very easy to do quickly... I should have a patch by Sunday evening California time.
Missed my self-imposed deadline... I should have time this evening to do this.
Created attachment 192084 [details] [diff] [review] patch in progress This does what we want but there is additional cleanup and documentation still to be done.
Created attachment 192163 [details] [diff] [review] patch This has more clean up in it than I originally planned to do but it needed it. I also found a bug with getIncompatibleItemList where appManaged items were returned when includeDisabled is true. The versionUpdateOnly in param for update is a long though it is usually called using a boolean. This allowed me to use a value of 2 for applying the found app compatibility info during a version only check in order to downgrade. Not the best solution but it does accomplish the desired result.
Created attachment 192271 [details] [diff] [review] patch for checkin The only change is passing the app.extennsions.version to getIncompatibleItemList from update.js which turns out is required from outside of the EM. I can't get a hold of bsmedberg on irc so re-requesting.
