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

We'll do this in three phases: First, the localization team and flod (Francesco Lodolo) will look at the market for the language and come up with a good set of search providers. Misael, we'll need your input on this. The guidelines for making recommendations are found on <https://wiki.mozilla.org/L10n:Firefox/Productization>. 

We currently use this set for en-US, to which we can fall back in the case of lacking localized alternatives:
Google, Bing, Amazon, DuckDuckGo, Twitter, Wikipedia, eBay

Adding brand new search engines, that not yet ship in any other language, needs approval from Business Development and requires more time to get authorization and assets from the provider. To avoid blocking the initial set up, this type of requests should be split into follow up bugs. Misael, we'll likely need your help to at least get the owner's contact information.

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

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

The Triqui team and flod will be driving this bug to completion.

You can take a look here, to see what other locales in the area are shipping

e.g. 
cak: https://transvision.mozfr.org/productization/?locale=cak&product=browser

Should we just start with the default + wikipedia (es) for Triqui?

Per email conversation, using defaults and replacing Wikipedia with the es version.
