Chapter 17. Deprecation of XUL staff client

Starting with the release of 3.0.0, patches that fix XUL bugs will not be merged into master or backported unless they meet one or more of the following conditions:

  1. the bug is a security issue
  2. the bug involves the destruction of data
  3. the bug is a regression of functionality in the XUL staff client introduced by other work done to Evergreen

Under no circumstances will XUL staff client feature enhancements be merged.

This policy will continue through the 3.0.x and 3.1.x maintenance release cycles, and will become moot upon the release of 3.2.0, when the XUL staff client is slated to be entirely removed.
