ATM, gdata-provider for Gecko 8 (found on AMO) bears version number 0.9 but the trunk version at ftp.m.o has only 0.9pre. This means that for people like me (using trunk mailer with extensions.strictCompatibility defaulted to false and extensions.checkCompatibility.nightly user-set to false) every "Check for Updates" in the addons manager proposes an "update" (which is in fact a downgrade) to Google Provider 0.9. Each repo will need a distinct patch; I'll attach them shortly, starting with trunk.
this patch is for current trunk, it should land in comm-central before the upcoming merge, or in comm-aurora after it.
I can't find from where to clone comm-aurora etc. (or is it simply comm-central but updated to a different branch?) The corresponding patches for earlier versions should use the following version numbers: 0.11pre for Gecko 10 (current aurora, or beta after the upcoming merge) 0.10pre for Gecko 9 (current beta, or 0.10 in the release repo after the merge)
patch for Gecko 10 (current aurora). For beta after the upcoming merge, the "pre" in the version should perhaps be removed? Approval request should be for _comm_ aurora. Patch touches only one file, install.rdf for Calendar::Providers:GData. No l10n import.
patch for current beta, or for release after the upcoming merge. "pre" suffix removed from the version on the assumption that beta is "release-ready". Approval request should be _comm_ beta. Only one Calendar file affected. No l10n import.
Sorry if I was unclear about this in the email. I'd rather have the current comm-aurora be 0.10, since then it somehow matches with the Thunderbird version (ie. Tb 10 + gdata 0.10). To fix this all we need to do is push these patches after the merge, not now. We shouldn't drop the pre anywhere other than a release branch. Since I'm doing manual releases there and I don't have to do so every 6 weeks, I'd rather do this manually on AMO.

What about the current problem with gdata-provider 0.9 for Gecko 8, gdata-rovider 0.9pre for Gecko 9? Otherwise a match would be nice. > > We shouldn't drop the pre anywhere other than a release branch.

I was going by the notion that current "beta" builds are actually what used to be called release-candidates, which is the rationale behind their already having (for Firefox, Thunderbird and SeaMonkey builds) the exact same version string that they will have once released. To answer both problems, I'll make a new patch for Gecko 9 shortly, with gdata-provider version "0.9.1pre". Lowering the version of the AMO build raises its own problems, so I'd rather not do it. If you agree, I am willing to patch the trunk version again every six weeks (on followup bugs to this one) to keep up with increasing Versions of Gecko trunk; the minVersion and maxVersion are already preprocessed by the builder machinery.

Philipp, I don't know the merge schedule, but if you review these patches, then (if necessary after additional review- -> rewrite cycles, but I hope not too many) approve them or get them approved (do you have approval rights for Calendar-only fixes to comm-* ? It would seem logical but I don't rightly know) we can then decide where to land them when. I've now updated the patch titles in accordance with your comment #5 to simplify the task for whoever will do the actual hg push commands.
What do you say we automate it? This way we don't have to worry about anything at all :-)

This patch seems to obsolete all four of mine: Philipp, maybe you should mark them as such?

Yeah, just wanted to hear what you think before I do. The merge is happening this week, but with this automation we don't need to worry about gdata versions at all. We might want to consider extra logic to fix the maxVersion of Tb/SM, but this needs to be done for Lightning too so no need to do it here.
