Add-on collector extension 2.0.1

Uploading collection of active add-ons lists inactive/incompatible/deactivated and even not installed add-ons. I see the latter ones when I edit the add-ons in the collection at the end of the list. Here they are:

moneylooklauncher
2Believe
4link.me
Easy YouTube MP3 Downloader
Convert and Paste

Example for incompatible add-on: wfx_versions

Collection:
https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/collections/archaeopteryx/1066ac20-e3b5-ddc6-f26b-e34308/

I tried to reproduce with a new profile and extensions.bandwagon.debug == true, but I didn't manage to see the collection on AMO (and the extension dumps so much text to the console, that the system 'too much input' buzzer starts).
Now a test collection is public: https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/collections/archaeopteryx/58e364fe-d1a7-ff1a-4d99-8230b6/

It seems to be missing the United States English Spellchecker, the British English Dictionary and 'docked JS-console'.

What do you mean by this?

The (continuing/lasting) beep a computer emits if something goes wrong (i.e. if you put many keys for some seconds in a input shell). This seems to be caused by the add-on dumping all the API responses with the add-ons' details to the console.

This was a bug that was causing some inactive extensions to get auto-published even if the "Only publish enabled add-ons" was not checked. FF4+ only.

Fixed in r91658.

Yes, this is not pleasant. A solution lands in r91662 with the new pref extensions.bandwagon.api_verbose. False by default, setting this to true will spit the raw API output to debug log. Other debug/verbose stuff unaffected.

Dave, can you elaborate a bit more. When set to false (default), the user will not experience the beeping?

The output is significantly reduced, so chances are the beeping will be eliminated or reduced.
