And you removed one that the maintainer didn't like:

Bug 138535: 'foot' menu atk_object_get_child_count broken by on-demand

This bug really undermines accessibility of the 2.8.0 desktop.  A patch
has been awaiting comment for 4 months, and only today received a

Not a nice state of affairs.  I think this bug is well worth any
potential impact on panel, no workable alternative to the patch has been
suggested, and the performance concerns are theoretical.   I'd like to
see us have the opportunity to get feedback from Padraig, who produced
the patch (and is on holiday at the moment), with an eye to getting the
patch approved for 2.8.0.

There's one other accessibility bug in the list (other than the
accelerator keys problem, which obviously has a big a11y impact):

I wasn't expecting to get maintainer approval for this patch by freeze,
but if the release team and maintainer are OK with a slightly later
patch, I would be more than happy to revise and polish the patch with an
eye to trying to commit within the week.  It's important to accessible
login, but IMO not as critical as the panel issue.

gnome-panel-qa-maint, so Mark says he had not seen these comments.
