Seeking New Owner for Nightly Tester ToolsPosted: November 10, 2011
Nightly Tester Tools is an addon for Firefox nightly and beta testers. I’m the current maintainer of the addon, having been passed down the torch by Dave Townsend. It’s at the point where I no longer have time to give Nightly Tester Tools the attention it deserves.
Nightly Tester Tools has been around for a long time. It’s provided tools like build id copying, screenshots, and test crashing. The code is currently on Github, and there’s a Bugzilla component Other Applications/Nightly Tester Tools Where people file bugs.
Maintenance mainly involves bumping the version compatiblity on AMO every time there’s a new Firefox release and checking out new bugs or feature requests that come in.
This is a great opportunity for a nightly tester to build onto a tool that helps out thousands (NTT has about 100,000 users) of testers, and learn some extension development at the same time.
Please get in touch if you’re interested. I’m harth on #ateam on irc.mozilla.org and always available to answer questions about it and guide anyone along about the process.
