So you've cloned Scriptish's repository, made your awesome changes, and want to build an .xpi file? Then navigate to your clone with a console, and type the following:

$ make

Will build a copy for AMO, without an updateURL included in the install.rdf.

$ sh

Will build a copy with the updateURL specified in the install.rdf. This option allows you to set a custom URL (https only) to check for add-on updates.
