Re: Ideas for upcoming Bolzano GTK+ hackfest

Thanks for the heads up, Brian!

I have a few things that would be great to get a handle on:

1) - the current solution of using environment variables is deemed distasteful by some, but nobody has been able to offer a better solution. Hackers might try to look at this one hard.

2) AT-SPI/D-Bus - the funding deadline is coming up in mid-March. We need people to take a look at this work and evaluate where it is at and what it will take to move it forward. My end goal here is that an assistive technology such as Orca can provide access to both GNOME and KDE apps.

3) Evince a11y - Behdad might be working on getting something going with this, but any effort scoping out the problem would be great. The end goal here is provide decent access to PDF documents.

4) WebKit a11y - while not GNOME per se, it would be great to take a look at where they are and try to connect with any WebKit folks that might be there. The end goal here is to make sure WebKit is accessible and/or at least get the WebKit developers on the path to accessibility.

The second GTK+ Hackfest is being organized in Bolzano, Italy, for the week of April 27 to May 1st, 2009. Since libgail is a part of GTK+, it
seems it would be a good idea to get some accessibility related topics
included in the agenda.  Would people from the GNOME accessibility
community be interested in compiling some ideas or features that would
be good to include in the upcoming hackfest?

If so, we probably should make sure that they are highlighted
to Tim Janik or Matthias Clasen so that some a11y-focused people could
be invited to attend the hackfest.
