mozbase is useful beyond testing. I think it should live under python/ instead of testing/ to enforce this.

At the end of the day, things just go in the virtualenv and all is well. But, having all the available Python libraries under python/ does make it easier for Python hackers knowing what all is available so they don't accidentally reinvent the wheel.
I'm all for this, but for the A*Team its buried in priority soup.  If anyone wanted to own this, GOFORIT!

Hi! I would like to work on this bug can someone guide as to how should I proceed.

Hi hamzah,

To be honest this probably isn't the greatest bug for a contributor to pick up because:

  1. It isn't very technically interesting (just hg mv everything from /testing/mozbase to /python and update references to the old location)
  2. It has a very high potential to break things. This means it will require a lot of testing from someone with deep knowledge of all of our testing/build/CI infrastructure and I can't guarantee anyone will have the time to do that right now.

If this doesn't discourage you, feel free to take a stab at it. Just be aware that there might not be time for anyone to test and get it landed.
