Description

10 years ago
There is code in the QAC that must be tweaked each time a new version is added to the main product under test.  This is really difficult, and is going to make the QAC a non-starter for other products outside of Firefox.  We need a better way of setting this field and better error messages surrounding it as well.

Here is the offending code: http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla/source/testing/extensions/community/chrome/content/litmus.js#420

= Expected Results =
Should not have to edit code and rebuild for each new version of the product under test.

Why can't we query litmus for the supported branch information? And then require the users to pick the proper branches for their product that they are testing?

Litmus has been replaced by MozTrap. 

If we want an extension to integrate with MozTrap, it would be better to start from scratch with a new extension rather than trying to shoehorn that functionality into the >5 year old QAC.
