pushed my branch here:


i made a single source package of both the extension and the notary server,
since upstream is maintaining them in a single git tree. although really it
seems like it might make more sense to maintain them as two separate source

definitely should have some sort of team infrastructure, although the notary
server code might be outside of what the pkg-mozext-maintainers team normally
handles. not sure what would be best.

i should also mention that upstream is not so sure we should package for debian
until development slows a bit, expecting multiple new versions a week. if we
did upload to debian, experimental might be most appropriate.  that said, it
seems like perspectives shouldn't necessarily be removed the moment convergence
hits debian; it's a little more field tested.

live well,

p.s. i've subscribed to the bug report myself, so no need to CC me if you're
CCing the bug report. i left most folks out of the CC list; hope that's ok.
