Lots going on last week even though Thursday and Friday were holidays in the US.

Aaron posts a design document for extension installation. If you have feedback on the design, write a reply to the mailing list.

Adam writes about the current state of sandboxing on linux. We don’t plan on starting the implementation of a sandbox on linux anytime soon, but we’ve started to think about the problem.
