News readers are web services allowing users to subscribe to RSS/ATOM feeds online and view them. If Firefox detects a feed, it offers the user the option to subscribe to it, either as a live bookmark or via one of the web services.

The current News Reader in en-US is My Yahoo!.

We want to ship a good set of defaults for Lao and will do that in three stages.

First, the localization team and flod (Francesco Lodolo) will look at the market for the language and come up with good candidates. Saikeo, we'll need your input on this. The guidelines for making recommendations are on <>. After we decide on a particular news reader, flod will contact the owner and ask for permission. Saikeo, we'll likely need your help to at least get the contact information.

Once we have a specification on what the set of news readers for Lao should look like, flod will work on an implementation for that. flod will create and attach patches for the desired changes and request a review. After a successful review, flod team will land them. If you're interested, you can provide those patches too and request a review from flod before landing.

Please don't commit any modifications in browser/chrome/browser-region/ to the hg repository without a patch reviewed by flod, Axel or someone else appointed by them. The data here is sensitive to users and our search partners, thus requiring the extra care here.

The Lao team will be driving this bug to completion.
Repository already had a file copied from en-US, only updated to the common version, and reset version to 1

Added NetVibes to the list, since it's one of the few tools still available, and it can be localized if needed.
