(1 file, 6 obsolete files)

Tracking any changes to web services for Georgian. 

Here are the defaults:
Search plugins: Google, Yahoo, Amazon, Answers, CC, eBay, Wikipedia

Readers: Bloglines, My Yahoo, Google

Mailto: GMail, YahooMail, Hotmail
Calendar: 30boxes, Google, Yahoo

The guidelines for making recommendations is here:

any ideas? sometimes what's useful is a dictionary search site
Hi Gia,

any comments from your side? Should we add a search engine? Should we use the Georgian wikipedia instead of the English one? has some 20 thousand articles.

Any RSS feed handlers on Gergian, or popular in Gergia that we should think about?

Similar for protocol handlers, for mailto: or webcal: URLs?

Note, Hotmail already dropped off the en-US defaults, they won't get the implementation done in time.
Hi Gia - at least having Wikipedia is good and maybe a Georgian live bookmark is better than English BBC. I did some research on Georgian news but didn't find too much: -- but it's in english -- but it's a beta site

Please let us know ASAP. We are running low on time - you have about 1 week from Monday to finalize your decisions AND get permission from 3d party news source -  no pressure intended ;-) 
Sorry for late answer - seems i must change my email address - flooded with spam

for sure - yes Axel is quiet mature as well as and somehow
also must be best for search

Probably for live bookmarks
[and may be] for mail
there are some other blog, mail, lb services and i need couple of days figure out other [possibly better] opportunities or we can leave existing services for now.

1 week is quiet enough,
Gia, thanks
so great on and

for live bookmark, can you help me find a contact email on their website so I can write them now to gain permission. I've been on the site and can't seem to find a link for this.

for mailto - I will get permission and for them to do the work we'd need them to do and post back when it's resolved (only Russian?), anyway...

here comes translation

for collecting and distributing info

for advertisements
for conferences, presentations, pr, trainings
for project development

for technical issues

here come some doubts - they have mistake in site title (window header)
ახალი ა_ძ_ბები - instead of ახალი ა_მ_ბები
additionally - information in some sections are outdated (~month)

Appreciated - if i'll have couple more days to find other [possibly more appropriate] "vacancies" (as well as for other services also).

sent email, will post permission in the bug when received
Gia, can you create a patch to add wikipedia-ka instead of wikipedia (en)? is a good sample, the ShortName should be "ვიკიპედია (ka)" to match the wikipedia site. If it wouldn't, users would get another searchplugin offered when going there.

For google, we should just stick to the default plugin, IMHO, unless there's something fatally not working with it.
Whiteboard: needs-patch, needs-mic
[will be] attached below
All three must work (links checked, not patches itself [yet])
Difference are in link encodings:
utf8, wiki, and "asis" syntax
asis - could be most convenient for reviewing ;)

Georgian Google works smoothly more than 2 years
Comment on attachment 312731 [details] [diff] [review]
patch for wikipedia.xml Georgian search engine in wiki syntax

r- on this one, as this is the closest.

1. Any patching of a file called wikipedia.xml is pointless, it will not be picked up. You happily regressed bug 413331 by checking all the cruft back in.

2. What you need to do is change list.txt to not include wikipedia, but wikipedia-ka, and create a wikipedia-ka.xml plugin. This one is close, but it's ignoring my comment 7 about the ShortName.

So, list will look like this
is it acceptable?

Please note: links on page
are functional also
the list is acceptable thanks.

from comment #5 it doesn't sound like that news source is a good one for live bookmark from what you wrote. is there another that you have found?
for mailto if you'd still like to consider then i suggest we open another tracking bug to land that after RC1 - can you get me a contact there to email our request for permission and technical support please

This one looks not bad (Georgian content is richer)
Civil Georgia/Information and Analysis Directorate,
United Nations Association of Georgia
2 Dolidze St. Tbilisi 380015, Georgia
Tel/Fax: (+995 32) 33 25 16; (+995 32) 33 52 16;

as for mailto:
Unfortunately there are no better mail services in Georgia yet: & only
Both of them powered by Caucasus network -
The war between Georgian Telecom & Caucasus Online/Network started 3 days ago, may be its reasonable to wait.


P.S. In case of necessity i can connect directly to any
are they in georgian or english? they are both english for me
As for News - is Georgian version
Ignore which is for contact only - i got it from bottom right js popup at page.

As for Mail - entry page is on English, but registration is Georgian :)
I don't think we should have a specific google plugin for Georgian. The wikipedia plugin looks fine, we need to make sure it's in the build though.

That won't happen unless list.txt and the file itself match, and the best way to tell that is to actually create a full patch. Here's a short outline of what I'd like to have the patch look like:

cvs add wikipedia-ka.xml
rm amazondotcom.xml creativecommons.xml google.xml yahoo.xml answers.xml eBay.xml wikipedia.xml
cvs rm amazondotcom.xml creativecommons.xml google.xml yahoo.xml answers.xml eBay.xml wikipedia.xml
cvs -z3 diff -uN

The removal of the original files is totally fine as the build picks those up from the en-US source directories anyways.

Sorry for the late reply, I wasn't CC on this bug, and there was no actual review request on the latest attachments.

For protocol handlers, we currently have 30boxes for webcal: in the tree, but not a mailto handler (i.e., the en-US default for now). I think we should fix the latter as well.

gia, closing out on live bookmark for i'm ok with that but do they have an RSS feed? i'm trying to find the url for that on their site.

i'll post permission when i receive it
here is email i have sent. (still waiting on response). axel think we're ok to go ahead?

Subject: Firefox Georgian news feed


We would like to include your news feed in our upcoming release of Firefox 3 in Georgian. If you do not wish to give us permission please let us know as soon as possible. It would also be great to get confirmation from you that you give us permission to include your news feed in our browser. This means that users will click on your news stories and be taken to your website.

Thank you

Can we take the RSS feed discussion into a new bug? That's just distracting us from things that need to get done now.

For the things that are missing now, and are affected by tonight's deadline, see comment 20.
moving feed discussion to new bug 428301
Gia, we still need a patch for wikipedia, please check comment 20 again?

Instead of explaining again, I'll just grab this bug. This should happen too frequently, as I can't fix all of these bugs myself, really.

I'll land the attached patch, please make sure to cvs update browser, and to resolve all conflicts. Your working copies should have no left-over changes in ka/browser/searchplugins and ka/browser/chrome/browser-region, you might want to just remove both directories before the update.

Don't check-in any changes to any of the two directories without a patch that has my review, no matter why and what.
