The Test Pilot core devs have been having a conversation in IRC this week about options for moving away from the SDK. I summarized the status in our public meeting etherpad this morning, with some helpful edits. I’m posting the current pro/con breakdown here for feedback.
Note that we haven’t reached a decision yet; the next step is to prototype both approaches, then see which is nicer from the point of view of both experiments and the main test pilot addon.
Since copy-pasting from etherpad loses all author color tracking and all bullet points, I’m just inserting a screenshot here, sorry. When we get further towards a final decision, like, say, when the prototypes are ready for discussion, I’ll bump this thread / this Discourse topic.
The screenshot is available at https://screenshots.firefox.com/KSBV0ZEsP4YL5FMI/public.etherpad-mozilla.org, and it’s inlined below as well. I apologize for the non-accessibility of this bit of the discussion; if you have visual impairments and would like to catch the updates, try the etherpad or ping me in #testpilot IRC.
Comments or questions are welcome, here or in #testpilot.
