Packaging the MAR tools and scripts for easy download would make it easier for other XULRunner/Mozilla developers to make MARs and do updates.

I've generated a current set of mar tools on our 3 core platforms and put them up on people:

http://people.mozilla.com/~coop/mar-generation-tools/

mfinkle: should I put these tools under the xulrunner/ dir on stage too?

I've also thrown them up here:

http://stage.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/xulrunner/mar-generation-tools/

The last step here is for me to throw together a wiki page that describes our current process for creating complete and partial mars using these tools.
Sorry for being so late to the party here, but I think these tools should live elsewhere on FTP, probably http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/mozilla/libraries/mar or somewhere else close to MozillaBuild. They certainly aren't specific to XULRunner in any way.

Sure, but I think the original impetus for this bug was to allow people developing xulrunner-based apps to make use of these tools.

I'm happy to create the dir you suggest as a symlink too.

The wiki docs have been updated:
