There should now be a few people from Vinux on the Gnome list - please let us know how we can help - although so far I have not been able to get Gnome 3 to work on any of my computers as a live CD - I have not tried to install it to hard drive yet though, which might allow me to install non-free video drivers and maybe then it will work. Once I am back in work I will be able to check the Gnome list everyday, but this isn't a list I generally visit at home as I am too busy with the vinux mailing list.

Note that I am moving desktop-devel-list into the BCC field and replacing it with the gnome-accessibility-list since the chief complaint here seems to be a testing tool created by our team for our team.

This is a known issue I’m afraid. That is why we’ve included ‘accessible installer’ on our to-do list. Unfortunately, we just have not had the time to get to that yet. if someone from your community has expertise in writing accessible installers, we would love to have such a contribution. In the meantime, what I am planning on doing for the next spin of the distro is cause Orca to be launched automatically. People who do not need Orca can always quit it. :-) This should make the A11y Team’s testing tool more accessible to users. Would this address your immediate concerns?

Alternatively, would it be possible for you to join us on #a11y channel in GimpNet and/or on the gnome-accessibility-list where we do our work and planning? We’re a small team working with a number of downstreams, and while we want to actively participate in each of those communities, it is not always practical.

Agreed! Let’s continue this discussion.
