Re: Fwd: Proposed module: conduit

Accessibility is a problem for conduit. The GUI is simple, but the left tree view doesn't support keyboard navigation well. Also one has to drag some items to the right "sync area", there is no way to do this by keyboard. And the "sync area" is not accessible. I suspect accessibility work is need by goocanvas.

Lots of module proposals coming in. We should make sure we look at them for accessibility. Here's one for 'conduit'. Has anyone taken a look at it yet? The usual applies: 1) honoring theming, 2) keyboard traversal, 3) access via Orca, etc.

    Proposal on d-d-l:

    License: ??? (GPLv2 or later?)

    Short description:
    Conduit is a synchronization architecture for the GNOME desktop. It
    provides an intuitive GUI for synchronizing things and a DBus
    for external applications to do the same.

    Requires new external dependencies:
    goocanvas, pygoocanvas, python 2.5

    Summary so far:
    + use the GNOME infrastructure
    + a few releases since the proposal
    + good integration with popular GNOME applications by providing
    synchronization of the data
    + people generally like conduit, but are not happy with the UI
    + accessibility support seemed to be missing
    + gnome-keyring support was to be added back (had been taken out
    because of a crash)
