Right now, my answer is "gosh, I sure hope so." :-) Admittedly, not as
good as a "heck yes!", but better than "no."
Where things stand as of today is that WebKit needs quite a bit of work
to ready as far as a11y is concerned. HOWEVER, I've arranged my DayJob
schedule in such a way as to be able to devote around 3 days per week on
the GNOME side of WebKit a11y, and Xan is already providing patches for
the critical issues I've identified thus far. So if we can keep this up,
and if we do not run across any really complicated issues, I believe
that things will at least be "good enough" -- and ideally "good" -- in
time for 2.28. But it is hard to predict the future, especially this
early on in my (active) involvement, hence my optimistic maybe.
Xan, what are your thoughts? Vincent and others, when do you need a
definite yea or nay by?
