Purpose of dev-tech-xpcom

What's the purpose of this list?

I used to think it was about XPCOM itself, basically for questions about 
the code in xpcom/**.

However, that doesn't seem to be how everyone else uses it. In fact, it 
seems to be about all coding questions that are somewhat Firefox- or 
XULRunner-related. Basically what the platform or extension lists are 
supposed to be.

Should we, therefore, delete this list/newsgroup? As it is used, it is 
redundant.

Merging dev-tech-layout into dev-platform
Today I found out that I had missed a post from David Baron on dev-tech-layout, because I had no idea that this list exists. I think dev-platform is a better place to have the conversation related to the layout module (people are already having discussions about other modules over there). Does anybody have any objections? Cheers, Ehsan ...

Merging dev-gaia and dev-b2g into dev-fxos
--001a113ce93ebce35d051e4c0c73 Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8 Hello people of Firefox OS, After a discussion we have decided that the distinction between dev-gaia and dev-b2g mailing lists is not enough to warrant maintaining two lists. So we are deprecating both in favor of dev-fxos. So if you are subscribed to one of the aforementioned lists, you will be subscribed to the new dev-fxos list and we will shortly be decommissioning dev-gaia and dev-b2g. Thanks!

UI dev tools/tech
Hello,  I am newbie to .NET. I would like to know is there any tools or technologies in .NET world that will help me to develop a thin client (browser based web application) rapidly. I am looking something like drag n drop for UI components or some tags where I no need to worry about developing these components. I want to just use these tags or drag n drop them and concentrate on my business logic of getting data.  Thanks for your help.--Vijay Have you checked out Visual Studio? It is an IDE that helps you drag n drop controls on your page?RegardsBilal Hadiar, MCP, MCTS, MCPD, MC...

Removing dev.tech.gfx

newbie question
i'm planning to writing an XPCOM component is javascript. 1. how does javascript know to call the NSGetModule() method when a file is loaded. it always does it? 2. if i'm writing some code in c++, i assume i have to compile it for different platforms. does this result in different platform specific extension (.xpi) files or is it one file and the loader figures out the right version (i.e. subfoler) to load based on platform. 3. is there an online source for detailed docs on all the components and interfaces. thx. dashman wrote: > i'm planning to writin...

[moderator] testing dev-tech-crypto

dev-tech-crypto moderation changes
Since its origin a few months ago, the dev-tech-crypto@lists.mozilla.org list has been moderated, in an effort to keep spam out of the list. The rules have been rather simple: mail sent by list members gets right through, the rest goes into a moderation queue where it is reviewed daily. The occasional on-topic message from a non-subscriber address gets manually passed through, and the rest is discarded. Spam filters (are intended to) recognize most spam and discard it outright, so that the moderator need not review hundreds of spams daily to find the occasional rare nuggets. Un...

I get no response in dev.tech.css
page at http://www.mrkuhn.com should forward to http://www.mrkuhn.com/default2.htm, works with IE but not firefox. if anyone would let me know how to do a forward that's compatable for both it would be greatly appreciated. I also use resizeable iframes, which work properly for fitting with htm files but leave extra blank space on my aspx pages. If anyone knows a fix for that it would also be a big help.

[PATCH] File::Path::mkpath, /dev, /dev/dir and /dev/000000 changes
While fetching GD with CPAN.PM, I ran into some problems with File::Path::mkpath, in particular with rooted logicals: $ define/job/trans=conceal root_abcd_1 disk:[perl.cpan.build.id.blah.] mkpath('/root_abcd_1/lds') fails with a "invalid parameter" error when it tries to mkdir('/root_abcd_1'). There's a test in the code for a '000000' directory, but not for the lack of a directory....I suspect that the test was put in to prevent endless loops, prior to a modification of the File::Basename code. So here's a change that does the...
