Supermarket Belongs to the Community

Supermarket belongs to the community. While Chef has the responsibility to keep it running and be stewards of its functionality, what it does and how it works is driven by the community. The chef/supermarket repository will continue to be where development of the Supermarket application takes place. Come be part of shaping the direction of Supermarket by opening issues and pull requests or by joining us on the Chef Mailing List.

    • services/common/services-common.js - preferences for some shared services code, this should arguably be included in some other file
    • defaults/pref/services-sync.js - default preferences for Firefox sync, also oddly misplaced
    • browser/app/profile/channel-prefs.js - a file indicating the user's update channel. This is kept separate from other preferences because it can affect how updates are applied.
    • browser/app/profile/firefox.js - defaults specific to Firefox
    • browser/app/profile/firefox-branding.js - defaults specific to the specific kind of Firefox being installed (Nightly, Aurora, Beta, Release)
    • browser/defaults/preferences/firefox-l10n.js - defaults specific to the installed language of Firefox. None of the other preference files contain locale-specific preferences.
