I'm filing this bug with a rather generic description, but there's some pre-existing status from the pre-fx-4 times that we should review in the light of today, too.

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 the option 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 Occitan and will do that in three stages.

First, the localization team and Milos (Milos Dinic) will look at the market for the language and come up with a good candidates. Cedric, we'll need your input on this. The guidelines for making recommendations are on <https://wiki.mozilla.org/L10n:Firefox/Productization>. After we decide on a particular news reader, Milos will contact the owner and ask for permission. Cedric, 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 Occitan should look like, Milos will work on an implementation for that. Milos will create and attach patches for the desired changes and request a review. After a successful review, Milos team will land them. If you're interested, you can provide those patches too and request a review from Milos before landing.

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

The Occitan team will be driving this bug to completion.
Hey Cedric,

As Axel already said, defualts are Google and My Yahoo. I couldn't find any better options for your locale, but just want to say that French l10n team is using Netvibes as well.

Now, do you think Occitan folks would benefit from having Netvibes as well(or something else), or should we leave the defaults here, as well?
