from dependency bug...

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=316133#c16

Search engines will be shared with the nb-NO where possible.
We have the following wishes:
- The Google plug-in will be localized to include HL parameter. This is needed
to differentiate between nn-NO and nb-NO translations of Google.
- We'd like to drop the Yahoo plug-in for Nynorsk, as Yahoo is only provided in
bokm�l (nb-NO). Our search engines will include other engines that have bokm�l
language, but we feel it's necessary to avoid this where possible, in order to
give the user the best possible web experience.

We want the following search engines:
- amazon-en-GB (original from en-GB)
- bok-NO (dictionary search for both NN and NO)
- google-NN
- qxl-NO (auction site)
- telefonkatalogen-NO (telephone directory)
- wikipedia-NN (encyclopedia)

The suffix -NN means nynorsk-specific, suffix -NO means a nb-NO locale.

hey
sorry for weighing in so late in the game. 
for yahoo search engine plug in - considering they don't have a local language
product it is OK to drop them from the plug in list 
hope that's helpful
thanks

here are testing notes from Versjons-ID: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; nn-NO; rv:1.8.1b2) Gecko/2006082101 Firefox/2.0b2



Google
http://www.google.no/search?q=test&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozilla:nn-NO:official&hl=NN&client=firefox-a
search suggest is enabled, returning norwegian content when applicable

Yahoo
http://no.search.yahoo.com/search?p=test&ei=UTF-8&fr=moz2
search suggest is enabled, returning norwegian content when applicable

*** no.search.yahoo.com is not listed in http://wiki.mozilla.org/Firefox2/L10n_Requirements#Yahoo.21 but it looks like the right place to be directing traffic.

we need to make some quick progress on figuring out what plugins are going to be there for final 2.0 and start locking this down.

The discussion and approvals happened in bug 316133, marking this FIXED, too.

Please test all plugins on a nightly build and a fresh profile and VERIFY that they're working as expected.
