- Questions: ask and answer any questions here: Mouse Lock Implementation FAQ
- Trackable Work Items: put all sub-items we have to do here https://github.com/humphd/mozilla-central/issues
- Blog Series: http://vocamus.net/dave/?cat=28
- Clone our repo and build a debug version locally
- Get a https://bugzilla.mozilla.org account and CC yourself on the bug.
- Set a Watch on this page and the Q/A page so you know when things change.
- Break the spec down into an itemized list of things we need to do, tests we need to write, features we have to add, edge cases we have to worry about, demos we need to build, etc. Put the info into this page. We need to know everything we'll have to write and schedule when we'll do each bit.
