Bug 784841 - Part 2: Implement sandboxing for Python build files; r=ted,glandium This is the beginning of Mozilla's new build system.

More details are available in the thorough README.rst files as part of this patch. * * * Bug 784841 - Part 2b: Option to not descend into child moz.build files; r=ted

To have your bug fix / feature added to Mozilla, you should create a patch and
submit it to Bugzilla (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org). Instructions are at:

If you have a question about developing Mozilla, and can't find the solution
on http://developer.mozilla.org, you can try asking your question in a
mozilla.* Usenet group, or on IRC at irc.mozilla.org. [The Mozilla news groups
are accessible on Google Groups, or news.mozilla.org with a NNTP reader.]

You can download nightly development builds from the Mozilla FTP server.
Keep in mind that nightly builds, which are used by Mozilla developers for
testing, may be buggy. Firefox nightlies, for example, can be found at:
