This repository (system_api.git) contains constants and definitions like
D-Bus service names that are shared between Chromium and Chromium OS.
This repository is only for things like headers and .proto files.
No implementation should be added.
When writting a .proto file make sure to use:
"option optimize_for = LITE_RUNTIME;"
This will force usage of a lite protobuf instead of a full/heavy weight
protobuf. The browser only links against the light version, so you will get
cryptic link errors about missing parts of Message if you define a protobuf here
and then try to use it in Chrome. Currently CrOS links against the full
protobuffer library, but that might change in the future.
When declaring a protobuf, avoid use of required unless it is exactly what you
mean. "Required is Forever" and very rarely should actually be used. Consult for a detailed
of this issue.
