I just want to send out a reminder to let you know "GNOME Outreach
Program: Accessibility" stuff is still underway and that there are still
tasks available: http://www.gnome.org/projects/outreach/a11y/.
We had some really good interest in the documentation task and Vincent
Alexander, a very brave soul, is currently working on it (yeah!). This
is probably one of the most important tasks, so let's all try to get
behind Vincent and help him succeed.
We've had some interest in the Evince and Magnification tasks, but no
people have been designated as the official owners of these yet. This
is a reminder to submit your strong proposals! These are important
tasks, and I'm especially interested in seeing them succeed. I'd also
like to see more along the lines of the testing task as well as "your
idea here". Surely, there must be a really good idea someone has to add
value to GNOME accessibility! If you want some food for thought, take a
look at http://live.gnome.org/Accessibility/GetInvolved. Imagine, for
example, how cool it might be to create a kick butt DAISY reader.
We've also had some people working on the short-term tasks (yeah), with
some bugs being closed. There's still plenty of opportunity to
participate, however, so take a look and jump in. You'll get some cash
along the way to improving the overall accessibility offering of GNOME.
If I can manage to swing a trip to GUADEC this year, I'll also buy you
Finally, we've set up regular Monday meetings on irc.gnome.org/#a11y at
13:30 UTC for people to get together and chat. They've been very good
so far -- please come by this coming Monday if you are interested.
PS - As a potential discussion -- if there were something we could do
differently to make GOPA more attractive to you, what would it be?
