- I decided to scrap the idea of having a generic tab to be extended, since tabbrowser-tab has very little conversation-specific code anyway. Now, tabs themselves are fully transparent and there is no need for them to be extended.
- The conversation binding now extends tabPanel - a generic panel to be added to tabbrowser. Future UIs that want to open in a tab should also extend tabPanel.
- I moved conversation specific menuitems from tabbrowser to the conversation binding. These are now "injected" into the context menu when it is shown.
- Code for the above has been pushed (except for the last bit which is awaiting review) to my repo.
- Aside from this, I worked on an addon - Pastebinner - which pushes any message more than 10 lines long to a pastebin and sends the link as a message. It also adds a "/paste" command using which files can be pastebin'd and sent. I suspect this will be useful throughout GSoC.
