Subject Re: cordova-plugin-whitelist ios issue
Date Wed, 30 Sep 2015 15:48:14 GMT
So this mean I can add this engine tag today to the whitelist plugin with
some code specific to firefoxos?
 <engine name="cordova-firefoxos" version=">=4.0.0-dev" />

I know cordova-firefoxos@4.0.0-dev or ordova-firefoxos@4.0.0 is not on npm
but is very useful to give users the warning now.
This will avoid the user from upgrading the plugin ever in the future when c
ordova-firefoxos@4.0.0 is published to npm, I might get c
ordova-firefoxos@4.0.0 around december or longer  so I don't think it will
be a problem for them to see the warning until then.

If everyone is OK I will put this code today? this will avoid user from
having to upgrade the plugin in the future :-p

This is the point I want to make, and guess email communication is not
being our friend to express my point of view.
Will those interested on this topic up for a quick Hangout? Simon, Shaz,
