News readers are web services allowing users to subscribe to RSS/ATOM feeds online and view them. If Firefox detects a feed, it offers the user to subscribe to it, either as a live bookmark or via one of the web services.

The current News Readers in en-US are Google and My Yahoo!.

We want to ship a good set of defaults for Zulu, and will work towards that in three stages.

First, the localization team and Stas (Stas Malolepszy) will look at the market for the language and come up with a good candidates. Dwayne, we'll need your input on this, the guidelines for making recommendations are on <https://wiki.mozilla.org/L10n:Firefox/Productization>. After we decided on a particular news reader, Stas will contact the owner and ask for permission. Dwayne, we'll likely need your help to at least get the contact information.

Once we have a specification on what the set of news readers for Zulu should look like, the localization team and Stas will work on an implementation on that. This should happen by the localization team creating and attaching patches for the desired changes, and requesting review from Stas. After a successful review, the localization team will land them. If you're not feeling comfortable with creating those changes, ask Stas to help out.

Please don't commit any modifications in browser/chrome/browser-region/region.properties to the hg repository without a patch reviewed by Stas, Axel or someone else appointed by Stas/SethB. The data here is sensitive to users and our search partners, thus the extra care here.

Probably a good deal here can be re-used from the en-ZA setup.

We can safely use en-ZA here.  Shall I commit that and close?

We'd prefer a patch for review for sanity and keeping notes.

We've put the effort to ship Firefox Desktop in Zulu on hold.

If there's renewed interest, we should get a new set of bugs on file at this point, I guess. Given how much changed since this was filed.
