I felt the audience was very engaged and we had almost a dozen questions in the question period and throughout. Most of the examples centered around the use of capabilities and the new security model. For example:
- What level of granularity will the manifests have? Do you have to just say “I use xhr” or “I talk to twitter but not facebook”?
- What will be the review process for capabilities?
- What license will capabilities use?
Perhaps I simply did not present this material in the clearest manner (it didn’t help that I didn’t have any particular slides covering the capability and manifest model) but it also reflects the reality that these particulars of the manifests’ security sections are still being fleshed out. I’m looking forward to the next time I speak on Jetpack when hopefully the discussion of the Reboot will be more concrete and I’ll be able to give a clearer overview and demo of these aspects of the Reboot.
If anyone would like the Keynote deck, just let me know. ↩
