Subject RE: [Discuss] 3.6.0 Release
Date Tue, 12 Aug 2014 15:48:15 GMT
Had a quick question on the whitelists. I remember that there was talk of using CSP to fix
this issue. A CSP file may not be backward compatible, but could potentially just give us
one list instead of 2 whitelists. The CSP file may be like the following

	script-src 'self',, 
	intent-src mail, sms

Note the new intent-src directive, that is basically used to launch external programs. Do
you think this could be something we can look at, for 4.0 ? I am not sure if our whitelist
xml file maps to a W3C spec, but CSP seems more like a standard. This is breaking, and 4.0
may be the right time to do it ?

I've created CB-7291 for the whitelist issue, and I've ported the code from June to the new-style
configuration architecture and committed it to a named CB-7291 branch on cordova-android.

If anyone has any thoughts/opinions on the syntax or the proposal itself, or on what the defaults
should be for new and upgrading applications, please chime in on the issue.
