Objective (from nnguyen's to do list)

* Make AMO feel like a local experience from anywhere in the world
* Give international editors the ability to customize content for their markets
* Allow users to change the content of AMO based on their own preferences.

Bug 635837 - Improve search quality for queries including non-ascii characters

Bug 635842 - Allow users to report poor l10n issue of specific add-on
Bug 635848 - Allow localizers to localize add-on summary/description
Bug 635854 - Allow localizers to choose featured add-ons in their locale
Bug 635855 - Globalize the "share this add-on" widget

Bug 635859 - Revisit the contribution feature

I'll file more bugs if noticed.
Thanks for filing all the bugs Kohei.

Wil and I will take a look and see where we can fit them in. Q2 is devoted to marketplace, but Q3 looks to be a good place to tackle a lot of them.

Anything in-product, such as the discovery pane, will have much higher priority though.
