Patch to replace De Mauro with Hoepli

Since the De Mauro Italian dictionary is not available anymore, we need to remove the existing plugin (demauro.xml) from the default set and replace it with a new plugin (hoepli.xml).

Attaching a patch for this purpose, I don't know if we still need an explicit review and keywords (fixed, verified). We'd need to apply this patch to l10n-mozilla-1.9.1 for Firefox 3.5.x.

A mail from Hoepli with the authorization to add the searchplugin has already been sent to Stas.

Patch to replace De Mauro with Hoepli

I tested this on Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; en-US; rv: Gecko/20091102 Firefox/3.5.5

Looks good.  Flod, please check in your change to your Hg repository and then submit your revision ID to this newsgroup:

Thanks Seth, check-ins done. I'll update the opt-in threads as soon as I can test and verify the new plugin.

Reopening to address some questions that emerged regarding Heopli's permission. 

Since timing might be tricky here (3.6 is getting really close to code-completeness), we might take a step back and split this change into two steps:

1. remove De Mauro,
2. add Hoepli.

Step 1 is easy and due to the fact that the De Mauro engine is no longer functional, we might want to do this ASAP, so that we don't ship Italian 3.6 with a broken search plug-in.

Step 2 will require some more communication with Hoepli, and I'm hoping we can figure this out before we freeze 3.6, but in case we don't, we can add them in a point release (3.6.1), so that we don't have to rush right now.

Flod, what do you think? An easy and safe solution would be to remove "hoepli" from list.txt and opt in with that, and then re-add it later. No changes are needed to the plug-in file itself, it can safely stay in the repository for now. 

If that's cool, please go ahead and land this change (remove "hoepli" from list.txt) mentioning my spoken r+ from this comment in the commit message.

We'll be working hard on step 2 in the days/hours to follow.

Commit (and opt-in request) done for l10n-mozilla-1.9.2
Thanks flod, I've just accepted the opt-in.
Flod, could you make the same change on 1.9.1? We'd like to take it for 3.5.7, so that we don't ship it with a broken search plugin.

> Flod, could you make the same change on 1.9.1? 

Sure, I should be able to commit and request the opt-in as soon as I get home (less than 12 hours).

Kev, any updates on Hoepli?

Since the updated permission from Hoepli is fine, can I go on and revert changes (adding hoepli) to list.txt in both releases? Do we need patch+approval?
flod, I trust you know very well how to do this, so please go ahead and land without patches. Please mention this comment in the check-in message, e.g. "r=stas in bug 532452 comment 12".

I'm glad to see that we can finally include Hoepli in Italian Firefox! :)
One more note: we normally don't change search engines in point releases (on stable branches), but since De Mauro has stopped working, I think it's a good idea to add Hoepli to 3.5.x as well. I consider this to be a fix to a broken feature that we had in 3.5.

So, flod, please add Hoepli on 1.9.1 and 1.9.2.

In the next hours I'll verify that everything works as expected on nightlies and I'll opt-in with the new changesets.

Thanks a lot Stas ;-)

Stas/Axel, if De Mauro is non-functional perhaps we should be removing it on update to a 3.5 or 3.6 release ? I'm currently testing a major update from 3.5.7 to 3.6rc1 and noticed searchplugins/demauro.xml was still present.
Nick: I've just tested a new profile created in 3.5.7 (with De Mauro) which I then opened in 3.6rc1. De Mauro was not there, correctly replaced by Hoepli. I guess a major update works differently? I filed bug 538570 to handle that.
Right, I tested the update and it did work differently. Thanks Nick for spotting that.
