What’s coming for 0.6

Recently I had a conversation with Ted on IRC about how to take steps to make the patch work properly for Win32 platforms.

Here’s the gist of what I’ll be working on for 0.6:

ted: http://lxr.mozilla.org/mozilla/source/Makefile.in#174
ted: that's where symbolstore.py actually gets run
ted: you see how it uses $(MAKE_SYM_STORE_ARGS) ?
ted: up above that line we define those per-platform
ted: like windows gets -c to copy .pdb files
ted: in the main() function in symbolstore.py, we process the cmdline args
ted: so ideally we'd have another flag there
ted: --generate-source-server, or something

That’s my task for now. Off to play with the Makefile.
