Description

11 years ago
http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all lists a language pack for a language whose name in English is Furlan and whose name in itself is Friulian.  This is backwards, as far as I can tell.  For some evidence other than my "I've never heard of that", see:
  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friulian_language
  http://fur.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lenghe_furlane

Note that the URL of the page it links to has the wrong name; the other language pack pages are named by the name of the language in English.  If this is changed, the existing one should be redirected.

I can make this change, but am CCing Mic for her approval - she has the original list.

thanks dbaron for catching

>+# Special rewrite for Friulian language page (bug 407058)
>+RewriteRule ^en-US/firefox/lang-packs/furlan.html$ /en-US/firefox/lang-packs/friulian.html [R=301]

er, why? This is a new page. Nothing should be linking to it. I'd rather not add another redirect for something that isn't needed.

I agree with you, Reed.  If there are no objections, let's leave it out.

The page exists now, so people could have bookmarked it or linked to it or shared the link in other ways.  Why do you say nothing should be linking to it?  You shouldn't break that link.

There have been 19 hits on that page since it launched, including all robots and our verifying.  I don't think anyone's bookmarked it, but no guarantees.  

I don't feel strongly about this.  If dbaron does, I'd rather err on the side of the user and deal with the extra 2 lines in the .htaccess.

I'm one of the developers, I don't think a redirect is really needed, since it's just a couple of days that the page is online, you could put it just to be 100% sure. A bit OT, but is that page supposed to be translated in the affected language (in this case Friulian)?
Thanks

r=me, with or without the rewrite rule (still don't think it's needed at this point in time since the page is so new).

The breadcrumbs are not correct here, but that's a separate bug, as I bet all the lang pack pages have incorrect breadcrumbs.

Thanks everyone.  This is merged to production (with redirect) and should go live next time we update.

Reed: good catch on the breadcrumbs

A. Decorte:  It's not supposed to be translated yet
