Good question.  OOo 3.3 sends a request with a URL like this:

https://registration2.services.openoffice.org/RegistrationWeb/register/urn:st:e7251802-3c52-4e08-a74f-a22eca7458ff?product=OpenOffice.org&locale=en&cid=926117

So it does have a "locale" parameter.   My guess is the legacy
registration server used that info to provide a localized registration
form.

Currently we don't have an equivalent page in other languages.   We
could clean up that page and get it translated into the various
languages.  But I don't know enough about Apache server rewrites to
know if it is possible to redirect based on a URL parameter.  Maybe
one of our gurus can tell us it is possible to redirect:

https://registration2.services.openoffice.org/RegistrationWeb/register/urn:st:e7251802-3c52-4e08-a74f-a22eca7458ff?product=OpenOffice.org&locale=en&cid=926117

to

http://registration2.services.openoffice.org/confirm_en.html

or even:

http://en.openoffice.org/confirm.html


In other words, can we pick out a URL parameter and use that elsewhere
in the rewrite?
