We should probably just remove jssh from the repository. AFAIK it's unowned code.

Well that sucks.  Surely someone here can just update it to work with the new way Firefox 4.0 handles extensions.  It works beautifully in beta 2.
I'd do it myself if I new how, but I have no idea how any of his stuff works and the docs are all old :(

Someone could, but it's not something we care about. If someone wants to maintain it, they'd be better off with it in a separate repository, not in mozilla-central. The fact that it exists there at all is a historical accident.

Pretty much what I was going to say in the bug I was going to file before I saw this one: it died sometime between 2006 and 2008, and its not going to come back to life while it's still in the tree.

Technically you could just use a=NPOTB, since this totally qualifies.

Probably obvious to anyone who ought to be trying to maintain jssh, but, to get it back all you have to do is "hg up -r 3ca5d6674feb" and copy it to wherever you're going to work on it.
