namespace extensions {
// Contains information about which extensions are assigned to which processes.
// The relationship between extensions and processes is complex:
// - Extensions can be either "split" mode or "spanning" mode.
// - In spanning mode, extensions share a single process between all incognito
// and normal windows. This was the original mode for extensions.
// - In split mode, extensions have separate processes in incognito windows.
// - There are also hosted apps, which are a kind of extensions, and those
// usually have a process model similar to normal web sites: multiple
// processes per-profile.
// - A single hosted app can have more than one SiteInstance in the same process
// if we're over the process limit and force them to share a process.
// In general, we seem to play with the process model of extensions a lot, so
// it is safest to assume it is many-to-many in most places in the codebase.
// Note that because of content scripts, frames, and other edge cases in
// Chrome's process isolation, extension code can still end up running outside
// an assigned process.
// But we only allow high-privilege operations to be performed by an extension
// when it is running in an assigned process.
// ===========================================================================
// ===========================================================================
// 1. This class contains the processes for hosted apps as well as extensions
// and packaged apps. Just because a process is present here *does not* mean
// it is an "extension process" (e.g., for UI purposes). It may contain only
// hosted apps. See
// 2. An extension can show up in multiple processes. That is why there is no
// GetExtensionProcess() method here. There are two cases: a) The extension
// is actually a hosted app, in which case this is normal, or b) there is an
// incognito window open and the extension is "split mode". It is *not safe*
// to assume that there is one process per extension. If you only care about
// extensions (not hosted apps), and you are on the UI thread, and you don't
// care about incognito version of this extension (or vice versa if you're in
// an incognito profile) then use
// extensions::ProcessManager::GetSiteInstanceForURL()->[Has|Get]Process().
// 3. The process ids contained in this class are *not limited* to the Profile
// you got this map from. They can also be associated with that profile's
// incognito/normal twin. If you care about this, use
// RenderProcessHost::FromID() and check the profile of the resulting object.
// TODO(aa): The above warnings suggest this class could use improvement :).
