Description Cameron McCormack (:heycam) 2012-09-26 17:38:54 PDT
Should we be disabling @supports?  What criteria are we using to determine if it's safe to let through to Beta?

I think we shouldn't ship it in Beta if we don't plan to ship it in final.

So for 17, I think we should pref off, personally.

[Approval Request Comment]
Bug caused by (feature/regressing bug #): 649740
User impact if declined: We'd be violating our commitment to pref off features from pre-CR specs.
Testing completed (on m-c, etc.): No testing, it's just a pref flip.
Risk to taking this patch (and alternatives if risky): Low.
String or UUID changes made by this patch: N/A

Please make sure to land before Monday (to make the merge) and please mark bug 649740 as "disabled" for status-firefox17 when this lands.

Docs probably need to be updated to mention that it is preffed off for Firefox 17.
Comment 8 Cameron McCormack (:heycam) 2012-10-05 17:18:20 PDT
Backed out for orange; the tests need tweaking so they don't fail when the pref is off:

Comment 11 Jean-Yves Perrier [:teoli] 2012-10-21 02:42:43 PDT

are up-to-date with the disabling (and the pref).
Comment 12 Scoobidiver (away) 2012-10-21 03:55:00 PDT
It's not up-to-date for release notes:
