Re: The annoyances of proprietary Firefox extensions

AMO (addons.mozilla.org) allows developers to display an EULA before their add-on is downloaded. Many of us don't bother, not wanting to scare off users with a pile of legalese, even if the legalese is assuring them that they *have* rights. In light of this, I think it makes sense for AMO to add a field where developers can specify the license in use in the description of the add-on. I think there's already a ticket relating to that in bugzilla, so it'll probably happen in some future version of the site. Mozilla is a very open community, and anyone is welcome to contribute bug reports, feature requests, and even policy suggestions. However, it's probably best to do so in the right place, and arguably, this isn't it.
