It's referenced in the documentation, but when I try to do this, I get
"Files packaged as .crx can not be uploaded directly. Please upload a
zip file that contains your extension or app as described here."
I suspect that this is old documentation (back when people could
distribute their own .crx files). Could also be something that's for
enterprise developers who have the ability to provide custom crx files
across a huge deployment.
I'll send an email to the chromium-extensions list and let you know
what I find. =)
