Re: Need to update bookmarks API compatibility

NNTP-Posting-Host:  63.245.214.181

Sir, it would be my honour to update this doc as this is going to be my
first contribution. ☺

Please let me know when the WebExtensions data will be updated to the new
JSON schema so that I can update the doc.

Thanks,

That's exciting! I did not know that.

The data used to build that table is stored here: https://github.com/mdn/
browser-compat-data, and we happily accept pull requests...usually. Right
now we are in the middle of updating the data to a new JSON schema, so I'd
rather not take any updates to it. But I do hope that I will have updated
the WebExtensions data in the next couple of days, and can let you know
then if you would like to update it yourself. If you wouldn't like to
update it yourself, I can :).

I've filed https://github.com/mdn/browser-compat-data/issues/165 so no one
forgets.

Thanks!
