AFAIK whether or not to accept WebKit as a dependency is not only
related to whether or not there will be a "working" epiphany release
at the same time. There's other modules planning to move from gecko to
webkit, and I think that for all of them WebKit is already good enough
minus the a11y regression (that's why this is a blocker). In any case,
the current plan for Epiphany is to release some kind of alpha/beta
version of the webkit port at the same time than 2.26, and declare it
stable or good enough by 2.28, but as with any other volunteer-based
project this can wildly fluctuate depending on what people actually
end up doing (that being said, I'm happy with the major progress in
the last two or three months).

Cheers, Xan
