Bug 1258341 - Modify 'eslint' implementation to work with the mozlint framework, r=smacleod This integrates 'eslint' with the mozlint framework. The old |mach eslint| command is kept around for backwards compatibility and will simply dispatch to |mach lint|. But |mach lint| should be preferred as the old command may eventually be removed. The old |mach eslint| command should be mostly backwards compatible with a few exceptions: 1. Can no longer define --extensions on the command line, this is instead hardcoded into eslint.lint. 2. No longer using eslint formatters. However, the default mozlint formatter should be identical to the default eslint formatter, so developers should not notice a change. This does mean that non-default eslint formatters can no longer be used unless a mozlint copy of them is created. 3. Installs dependencies automatically without prompting the user. This was necessary due to python multiprocessing limitations, but is actually also a better UX. Because the npm dependencies aren't global anymore, there isn't really any reason *not* to install them automatically. Apart from that, any difference from the old |mach eslint| I'd consider a bug. The main eslint implementation now lives in tools/lint/eslint.lint instead of tools/lint/mach_commands.py. MozReview-Commit-ID: KYhC6SEySC3

Please be apprised of the following Legal Notices:

A) The U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia has
ruled that the Netscape Navigator code does not infringe Wang's U.S.
Patent No. 4,751,669 ("the '669 Patent") because: 1) HTML is not
Videotex as defined by the '669 patent; 2) web servers are not central
suppliers; and 3) Navigator does not "connect," as defined by the '669
Patent, to web servers on the Internet. Wang may appeal this decision to
the Federal Circuit. Wang contended that its Patent disclosing a
"Videotex" system, is infringed by the following functionality in the
Netscape Navigator code: 1) the animated logo and status line indicators
--See Claims 1,8 and 9; 2) the "File Save As" function --See Claims
23-27; 3) Bookmarks and Rename Bookmarks in the Properties window --See
Claims 20-22; 4) storing HTML, GIF, and JPEG files and adding filename
extensions --See Claim 38

B) Intermind owns pending U.S. patent applications on communications
systems which employ metadata ("channel objects") to define a control
structure for information transfer. The Netscape code does not infringe
as released; however, modifications which utilize channel objects as
described by Intermind should be considered carefully. The following is
a statement from Intermind: "Intermind's claims fundamentally involve
the use of a control structure to automate communications. ...The
essence of Intermind's top claim is that two devices sender and receiver
have persistent storage, communicate over a network, and exchange a
control structure including metadata which describes: 1) what
information is to be updated, 2) when to update this information, and 3)
how to transfer the updated information. In addition, at least the
receiving device must be able to process the metadata in order to
perform the update determination and transfer. Any digital
communications system which incorporates all of these elements will be
covered by Intermind's patents." See Intermind.com.

C) Stac, Inc., and its licensing agent Hi/fn, own several patents which
disclose data compression methods implementing an LZS compression
algorithm, including U.S. Patent Nos. 4,701,745 and 5,016, 009 ("the
Stac Patents"). The Netscape Communicator code does not perform
compression. If you modify the Netscape source code to perform
compression, please take notice of the Stac Patents.

D) Netscape Communications Corporation ("Netscape") does not guarantee
that any source code or executable code available from the mozilla.org
domain is Year 2000 compliant.
