Me. See https://wiki.mozilla.org/Firefox/Features/PFS2_datasource.

It's in the feature page, but it's essentially moving the Plugin Finder Service from an AMO-hosted python script to the facility that is built-in to plugins.mozilla.org. 

Full scoping is at https://wiki.mozilla.org/PFS2 (this is a completed service that has some open questions on perf/load capacity)

Not applicable. What's in the feature page and product currently should be sufficient.

Not that I believe.

It changes the data source for an existing Firefox feature to use a backend driven by a db instead of a big 'ole hacky python script that's essentially a giant if/else statement.

> Are there any portions of the project that interact with 3rd party services?

Clients are referred to third-party websites to download plugins capable of rendering the content we don't render natively.

> Will your application/service collect user data? If so, please describe 

No information is collected and stored. User agent and mime-type information is submitted to the service, but nothing that is user=specific.

PLease let me know if context around the review can be required. AFAIK plugins.mozilla.org has aleady passed a review, and it'd be helpful to understand the goals of the review and what the specific concerns are.
