Since bug 579547 removed both the in-app credits and the link to about:credits, there is no place in the application that links to anything credits related. Need to add a link somewhere to about:credits. This most likely has strings consideration.

We can linkify the "global community" line; sorry, I omitted that in one of the design revisions.

Not a disaster, IMO, if we don't get to it in time. It's a nice easter egg for contributors, and also already linked in about: as well.

I don't think we need to link this at all in the UI. As long as typing about:credits gets you there, I think we're good. I certainly wouldn't block anything on this.
Attached patch patch - v1 (obsolete) — Splinter Review
* Add link from "global community" to about:credits
* Fix typo of "LOCALIZATION"
* Add ending slashes (cuts out an unnecessary redirect)

beltzner gave the string change ui-r+ over IRC.
