Protocol handlers are a new feature in Firefox 3 that allows links like mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org to be handled by a webmail application. In order to do that, the site needs to support a special API described on http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Web-based_protocol_handlers. For en-US, we're currently shipping with Yahoo! Mail and GMail for mailto: and 30boxes for webcal: urls, and we're on a ongoing evangelism effort to add more. For Esperanto, we'd like to do that, too, and the current state in CVS is reflecting that. First, the localization team and Stas and Mic will look at the market for the language and come up with a good candidates. Eduardo, we'll need your input on this, the guidelines for making recommendations are on http://wiki.mozilla.org/Firefox_web_services_guidelines. Following that is a reach out by the evangelism team to try to get the vendor to support protocol handlers. Once that happens, Stas and Axel will take over in reviewing the actual implementation, which will need to change the gecko.handlerService.* entries in eo/browser/chrome/browser-region/region.properties. Please don't make changes to that file without getting a positive review by Stas or Axel, or somebody else appointed by Seth on a patch for that change upfront.
