OK - if Owen & Miguel don't think so, then consider the request dropped.

To understand where the request was coming from, I think the
announcement that Orca was being dropped from the GNOME 3 core
moduleset, without (apparently) the prior knowledge of the Orca
maintainers, or any list of things which are needed for Orca to become
"GNOME 3 ready" is evidence that communication between the release team,
the shell team and module maintainers has failed at some point. My
proposal was intended to help alleviate that.

So let's try to keep to the d-d-l description for the next few months:

To that list I would add Bugzilla and
