[meta] IDE development support for mobile/android
A lot of Firefox for Android devs want to be able to develop mobile/android using an IDE of their choice (probably IntelliJ, but possibly Eclipse or $(NEWIDE)). There are a bunch of things standing in the way of that goal. Off the top of my head: * where source code lives in the tree * preprocessing of source code * conditionally compiled code * package naming * where resources live in the tree * preprocessed resources * post-processing (JNI integration) * developing against a shifting omni.ja * packaging native libs in libs/ and Gecko libs in assets/ * developing and running Robocop tests * developing and running JUnit 3 background/browser tests * improving our mach tooling for building and maintaining these IDE integrations * documenting the new tools and changes we make * improving our "new contributor funnel" * evangelizing improved developer ergonomics to the wider Java and Android community This meta bug will track progress towards those items.
Erin - we use the relnote flag for things that are fixed already or are known issues that need to be noted, not for a meta bug on a feature that hasn't even begun to get implemented yet. Please renom when this is within a targeted release (ideally fixed on trunk).
