Description Óvári 2019-07-26 09:17:10 UTC
This is probably the wrong place to submit this infrastructure suggestion. Please move this to the correct place.

When typing the LibreOffice URL (www.libreoffice.org or libreoffice.org) in a web-browser, it currently always goes to the English language edition (https://www.libreoffice.org/). It should go to the language locale edition of LibreOffice.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set the locale to hu (Hungarian)
2. Type libreoffice.org into the address bar of a web-browser

Actual Results:
3. The LibreOffice English version opens, i.e. https://www.libreoffice.org/

Expected Results:
3. The LibreOffice Hungarian version opens, i.e. https://hu.libreoffice.org/

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
libreoffice.org should redirect to https://hu.libreoffice.org/

This has been implemented with:
* Mozilla Thunderbird as thunderbird.net redirects to https://www.thunderbird.net/hu/ and is in Hungarian
* Jami as jami.net opens as https://jami.net/ as is in Hungarian
* VLC as videolan.org opens as https://www.videolan.org/ as is in Hungarian
* Mozilla Firefox www.mozilla.com/firefox/ redirects to https://www.mozilla.org/hu/firefox/ and is in Hungarian
* MuseScore musescore.org redirects to https://musescore.org/hu and is in Hungarian (where the strings have not yet been translated into Hungarian they are in English)

What do you think?

Thank you
