Description

Spec/implementation details to follow.

Elevator pitch version of the plan:

Provide a means to sign trusted extensions in order to bypass the xpinstall whitelist and present friendly UI for known extensions.  Install of big scary "are you really really sure" UI we can show something nicer.
When the details follow, it would be good if they included the threat model or some other description of what attacks we're seeking to prevent.
Product: Firefox → Toolkit
Are there any further details, otherwise I'll just close this.
