Details

Protocol handlers are a new feature in Firefox 3 that allows links like mailto:nobody@mozilla.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. ms live mail are coming up shortly. For Occitan, we'd like to do that, too.

First, the localization team and Stas (Stas Malolepszy) will look at the market for the language and come up with a good candidates. Yannig, 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, Axel will take over in reviewing the actual implementation, which will need to change the gecko.handlerService.* entries in oc/browser/chrome/browser-region/region.properties. Please don't make changes to that file without getting a positive review by Axel or somebody else appointed by Stas/Sethb on a patch for that change upfront.

I don't really know what to say. For now, there is no webmail in Occitan but it's planned to have gmail in that language. Would that be enough?
Yes, I think it's OK for us to go with the defaults for now.

Marking as fixed, based on what I see in http://bonsai-l10n.mozilla.org/cvsblame.cgi?file=l10n/oc/browser/chrome/browser-region/region.properties&rev=1.1
