This is the runbook for release management of the WikimediaDebug browser extension.


Release process

See #release-process in the README.

Access control

Chrome Web Store

The Chrome Web Store is managed from its Developer Dashboard. It works with a concept of publishers where your Google account has access to one or more publishers, and a publisher can owner one or more browser extensions. When you register your Google account as "Chrome Web Store Developer", there is by default a personal "Publisher" associated with you based on your username.

The WikimediaDebug extension is owned by the "chrome-wikimedia-debug" publisher, which is access-controlled via the member list of (about), where each member is the email address of a Google account.

Firefox Addons

The Firefox Addons are managed from the Developer Hub. From the "Edit Product Page" interface for WikimediaDebug, one can manage which "Authors" have access to release or manage the extension, where each author is the email address of a Firefox account.
