How do I install a multiple add-ons from the terminal?

Add this text to a script and execute it:

echo "<RDF xmlns=\"\"

  <Description about=\"urn:mozilla:install-manifest\">
    <!-- nsIUpdateItem type for a Multiple Item Package -->
    <em:type>32</em:type>" > install.rdf

echo "This package was prepared by following:" > README

wget \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \

zip -r install.xpi install.rdf README addon-*.xpi

echo "Install the multiple item package file install.xpi by going open IceCat, then navigate to Tools -> Add-ons -> Tools for all add-on -> Install Add-on From File..."

How do I find a matching IceCat version?

If you see "Not available for Firefox xx.x" if you evaluate an add-on in you have to go to the add-on page and click on "Version Information" and then on "See complete version history" to find a version that match your browser version.

What should I think about when I submit IceCat entries?

Please add "IceCat" but not "Firefox" in the "This an extension, add-on, or plugin to" field in new add-on entrys, as suggested by the FSF.
