B2G/Gaia Helper Scripts
Contains a single cli script -
b2g-scripts with a growing number of subcommands.
In general it is assumed you have a working b2g emulator/desktop/phone with marionette turned on and listening on port 2828.
Commands like reload-app are not going to be useful if you're not in DEBUG mode (everything is in offline cache).
