Here is the output of the failure:


raise ValueError('invalid resource hostname: %s' % name)
ValueError: invalid resource hostname: jid0-bl4lyaykaevzios5naqsnyabajc-MailPing-lib


Even if we insist that lowercase names be used, we should still output a more descriptive error to the developer in the case they do this by mistake :)

The Add-on SDK is no longer a Mozilla Labs experiment and has become a big enough project to warrant its own Bugzilla product, so the "Add-on SDK" product has been created for it, and I am moving its bugs to that product.

To filter bugmail related to this change, filter on the word "looptid".

warn user better

I have no clue what I'm doing in Python, but this looks like it might work for giving the user a more specific error. 

Haven't really tested it, as it's 2:30 in the morning and I'm due for a nap.

Alternatively, would it work if line 69 in the original file was changed from this:
if not RESOURCE_HOSTNAME_RE.match(name):

to this:
if not RESOURCE_HOSTNAME_RE.match(name.lower()):

If it's just that RESOURCE_HOSTNAME_RE is all in lowercase so that it doesn't match the case of name in python (but everything else would still work), this would get around a case-mismatch throwing that error at all. I think.

canceling review. per your subsequent comment, can you see if that fixes it? if it appears more complex than that, we can take this instead.

Seems that comment 4's idea might work. (Or at least, with that change, I'm not seeing any errors thrown after creating a package using cfx init inside of a folder containing called "UPPERCASE", then using cfx run to test it.)
Don't have time to do any more thorough testing than that, though.

warning that actually works

On a second look, it seems cfx run was using a 3.6 binary, so nothing was happening at all when it loaded Firefox, thus no errors. Oops.

Passing it a 4.0 binary, I get the following exception thrown when I try comment 4's change and a mixed case name:
[Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80040111 (NS_ERROR_NOT_AVAILABLE) [nsIIOService.newChannelFromURI]"  nsresult: "0x80040111 (NS_ERROR_NOT_AVAILABLE)"  location: "JS frame :: resource://jid0-hyn5caoq3naioibtljcs1kee6jy-api-utils-lib/securable-module.js :: resolveModule :: line 585"  data: no] (undefined:585)

And trying to add some logging around line 585 in securable-module to figure out what it's doing makes cfx run throw the following exception:
[Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80520012 (NS_ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND) [nsIXPCComponents_Utils.import]"  nsresult: "0x80520012 (NS_ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND)"  location: "JS frame :: resource://gre/modules/XPIProvider.jsm -> file:///tmp/tmpP4doNR.mozrunner/extensions/xulapp@toolness.com/bootstrap.js -> file:///tmp/tmpP4doNR.mozrunner/extensions/xulapp@toolness.com/components/harness.js :: buildLoader :: line 180"  data: no] (undefined:180)

And trying out the patch in comment 3, I get the following:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/kwierso/Desktop/addon-sdk-1.0b3/bin/cfx", line 29, in <module>
  File "/home/kwierso/Desktop/addon-sdk-1.0b3/python-lib/cuddlefish/__init__.py", line 598, in run
  File "/home/kwierso/Desktop/addon-sdk-1.0b3/python-lib/cuddlefish/packaging.py", line 219, in generate_build_for_target
  File "/home/kwierso/Desktop/addon-sdk-1.0b3/python-lib/cuddlefish/packaging.py", line 68, in validate_resource_hostname
    if not name.match(name.lower()):
AttributeError: 'unicode' object has no attribute 'match'

Comment 4's idea clearly would take more than a simple .lower() to work, so here's a new version of comment 3's patch that actually works as intended.
