We held a Mobile Tech Leads meeting on Tuesday (NA/EU timezones). My
opinionated summary of the discussion
1. Nobody has a technical path to a standalone Necko library that is
small enough to ship to non-GeckoView consumers (say, <3mb on Android).
2. snorp and nalexander have ideas about how to enable GeckoView
consumers to use Necko for non-browser REST-y requests and want to pursue
those ideas. snorp will focus on Java/Kotlin consumers; nalexander will
focus on Rust consumers.
3. We will soon want to ship multiple Rust components (say, Firefox
Accounts and Sync 1.5 logins) to a single consumes (say, Lockbox for
Android). That means we need to work out how to ship a single shared Rust
native code binary that integrates with the Android Components (and
consumer!) workflow. nalexander took an action item to draft a strawman of
how we might do this.
As always, please correct my summary (attendees) and ask questions or
