In places where Talos checks the platform for the local machine, it should just use mozinfo information and be done with it
would that be reading the mozinfo file from ??? also python 2.4 doesn't have json support
You could read a mozinfo file from somewhere, but mozinfo by itself just does things like determine the platform the machine is running on. Currently Talos does this by itself. mozinfo does not actually need JSON....it has a very simple JSON reader built it.
can we put this in now so I can use it in bug 675117?
(In reply to Joel Maher (:jmaher) from comment #3) > can we put this in now so I can use it in bug 675117? I see no reason not to.
Since there is no activity on this bug, and since we now depend on mozinfo, I'm going to close this. We do not yet use mozinfo universally, but we should move towards that, and specific issues should be ticketed
