Important Stuff Related to Devmo

CXC migration is almost done! I just need to give it some thorough review to make sure I fixed all the errata (both the publicly posted ones and a couple pointed out in private email), mark up in some way all the spots which probably need small information updates, and mark up in another way the information that's obsolete (like pretty much all the Mozilla-specific stuff). Then I need to post a request for help with the items that need it (in particular, making it all work with a Firefox SDK is a necessary item, as it's unlikely people are going to try working with a 1.4a SDK, especially as nsIContentPolicy may have changed since the book was written).

About Me

My name is Jeff Walden. My primary work within devmo is on the {{wiki.template('Named-source', [ "toolkit/components/help", "toolkit Help Viewer" ])}}. I also own and manage the Firefox Help viewer and documentation projects, and I work on the nascent Thunderbird Help -- take a look at our current progress and jump in and start making changes if you're interested in helping.

Stuff

    • An easy way to download it all (weekly exports?)
