Unrelated, each locale its own set of searchplugins. And the former PM for Fennec didn't want DuckDuckGo to be available in all languages, unlike we did for desktop on 38.0.5.

Interesting, thanks for the link. Do you know why that's the case? I wonder if the reasons are still relevant.

Adding DDG to one locale is something that l10n-drivers can take care of (Delphine is the PM in charge of l10n for Fennec), if the localizer wants.

Adding DDG to all locales is a product decision.

Side note: we've added DDG to other locales in the meantime (search for "duckduckgo")
