+targets:
+---------
+ install-xpi - unpack and install the contents of the .xpi file to the
+ package named by the MOZ_EXTENSION_PKG parameter
+ clean-xpi - clean build cruft from install-xpi
+
+parameters:
+------------
+ MOZ_EXTENSION_PKG - the binary package that will ship the extension
+ MOZ_XPI_FILE - the XPI file to unpack and install to the binary package
+ named by MOZ_EXTENSION_PKG. If not set, xpi.mk will use
+ the first |*.xpi| file found in the packages top level
+ directory
+ MOZ_XPI_EMID - use the given EMID to name the links in the applications
+ |extensions| directory. If not set, xpi.mk will try to
+ guess the right EMID by introspecting the |install.rdf|
+ shipped by the XPI
+ MOZ_XPI_BUILD_COMMAND
+ - use the given command _before_ running the normal
+ |install-xpi| procedure. This parameter is useful for all
+ those extension sources that have a command/make target
+ to produce a XPI.
+ MOZ_XPI_MOZILLA_DIRS
+ - link the extension to the global |extensions| directory
+ of the given MOZILLAs. The default value is |firefox| and
+ |firefox-addons|, which will link the extension to the
+ /usr/lib/firefox/extensions and /usr/lib/firefox-addons/extensions
+ directories, respectively.
+
+cdbs:
+------
+ If you are using cdbs (debhelper.mk) xpi.mk hooks in appropriately.
+ cdbs targets to build the packages without any rule. The only thing required
+ is to include the debhelper.mk from cdbs _before_ including xpi.mk.
