Description

5 years ago
A `mozenv` package has been discussed at several points in time.  This
package would essentially handle (Mozilla build, test, and runtime)
environment variables, which are currently handled by mozrunner, as
well as (currently) several other places.

We've discussed this and said no, but I did want to have a bug on
record for it even if it was to be immediately closed.

The only record of mozenv I just deleted:

https://wiki.mozilla.org/index.php?title=Auto-tools%2FProjects%2FMozbase&action=historysubmit&diff=619937&oldid=616367

So

* mozenv
** addvars
** createenv

Not much there.

In any case, my basic thoughts are:

* we don't need it now
* I think it is not unlikely we may need it in the future...
* ...but guessing most others will say YAGNI

Feel free to discuss and/or close as applicable.
We'll reopen this is we ever have a specific use case for it, but for now...
