We want to ship Firefox Mobile with a good list of search engines for Interlingua.

We're going to work towards this in three phases. First, the localization team and the l10n drivers will look at the market for the language and come up with a good set of search providers. Locale team, we'll need your input on this, the guidelines for making recommendations are on <>. 

For en-US, we currently use this set, to which we can fall back in the case of lacking localized alternatives:

> Google (mobile version), Yahoo, Bing, Amazon, Twitter, Wikipedia (slightly different to desktop, 32x32 icon)

We may also want to go with just a subset of the en-US engines, if that's more appropriate for the local market.

Once we decide to use a particular search engine (and we test it on a mobile device), l10n drivers will contact the owner and ask for permission in the cases where it's needed, and for specifics like proper search flags. Locale team, if this is needed we'll likely need your help to at least get the contact information.

For search engines that we already ship with on desktop and that you would like to include in mobile as well, the permission is not needed.  Consider using a mobile version of the engine if one is available.  Also, please make yourself familiar with instructions regarding the <Description/> element at <>. For mobile, we'll want 64x64 size images, too.

Once we have a specification on what the search engines for your locale should look like, Delphine and the localization team will work on an implementation on that. Delphine will create and attach patches for the desired changes and get them reviewed. After a successful review, :delphine will land them. Locale team, if you're interested, you could create the patches, too. You'd ask :delphine for review on those before landing. 

Please don't commit any modifications in browser/searchplugins to the hg repository without a patch reviewed by Delphine or someone else appointed by the l10n drivers. The data here is sensitive to users and our search partners, thus the extra care here.

The locale team and Delphine will be driving this bug to completion.
Hi Interlingua team! Could you help with giving me a list for searchplugins here? I assume the same as on desktop is good?

BTW couldn't find Johannes on bugzilla which is why I didn't mention him here :) Feel free to include him! thanks

Spoke to Interlingua team offline. They mentioned there was an "ia" wikiepedia so going to add that.
At this point, I have "google, yahoo, bing,". Anything else?
Sounds good for quick expediting of firefox with the interlingua locale.
Hey - I mirrored what I saw Flod set up for you on desktop, since this seemed to make more sense. thanks!
(also, taking the need info off the other team members).
Going to update file now.
