Action Plan: Overlay addon manager to show a banner with a link to the AMO (addons.mozilla.org) page where the AMO Browsing for SeaMonkey extension is located.

An example of how to do this can be seen in Bug 636104 (Redirect Lightning Preferences to the Suite Preferences window.)

Good Idea of Philip Chee:
Because a fix for "Bug 1145026 - Add-On-Descriptions:Add link leading to SeaMonkey add-on-converter and filling URL input pane"might take some time (or even might be: will never be fixed), as a quick solution a hint should be added to Discovery Pane of Add-ons-Manager.

This one is blocked by Bug 1145504

Probably Python skills will be required for fixing this?

Yes some basic Python would come in handy.
@Philip:
Do we know any openhatch success stories?

According to John-Galt the reason why we have Bug 1145504 (SeaMonkey discovery pane has a blank space at the top) is because our Carousel is empty. If we find out how to add items to the carousel we could add an item to bug 1145504 to display a link to the Add-on Converter. Have a look at how the current Firefox Carousel looks like.

"Bug 1224520 - Upload "AMO Browsing for SeaMonkey" to AMO" is fixed, so it would be great if someone could take action here.
