+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #358147 +++

We are working on upgrading our localized add-ons site to implement 'mashup' with  AMO API to support Firefox 3 Add-ons Manager integration. I'll provide new URLs for redirection when we are ready.
Assignee: server-ops → oremj
Please reopen when URLs are available.

I have a question for you. Do we have to use SSL for these URLs? Our plan is:

1. Retrieve add-on meta data from AMO

2. Replace the summary (and description, thumbnail, rating, in the future) with our localized ones.

3. Provide search API on, so Japanese people will be able to search localized add-ons from Add-ons Manager, in Japanese.

There is a hash value for each add-on installation link, and if that's enough to keep security, we won't use SSL.
I'd be worried about MITM attacks since this data is taken and shown in chrome.
I agree with Reed.

The whole reason AMO went to SSL was for security so Japan should be using SSL as well.
Reed, thanks for the advice. We'll setup SSL.
Our backend is now online.

For ja(-JP-mac), please replace the existing rules (which we have requested in Bug 358147) with this:

RewriteRule ^ja(-JP-mac)?/(firefox|thunderbird)(.*)$1$2 [R=permanent,QSA,NE]

For, please add the following rule:

RewriteRule ^ja(-JP-mac)?/(firefox|thunderbird)/api/([\d\.]+)/(list|search)/(.*)$1/api/$2/$3/$4 [R=permanent,QSA,NE]
Resolution: INCOMPLETE → ---
I made errors. Try again:

# For ja(-JP-mac)
RewriteRule ^ja(-JP-mac)?/(firefox|thunderbird)(.*)$2$3 [R=permanent,QSA,NE]

# For
RewriteRule ^ja(-JP-mac)?/(firefox|thunderbird)/api/([\d\.]+)/(list|search)/(.*)$2/api/$3/$4/$5 [R=permanent,QSA,NE]

Still waiting for approval from morgamic.
Reed, we really need this done ASAP.  Can you call Mike on his cell for approval?

Called Mike. He says it's really Basil's decision, so I called Basil's cell but only got voicemail. Left a message, so hopefully he'll call me back or respond here soon.
sorry for the delay guys


it's fine to do this
Due to Bug 415317, CJKT users cannot search using non-ASCII characters from the Add-ons Manager. With these redirects, Japanese people will be able to search using Japanese chars, but the problem still remains for others. Please look into the Bug 415317 too.
This should be all set.
