Re: No more bugs should be filed under atk/gail

> Actually, I do have a bug report with a patch for GTK+ accessibility here:

Patch that as I said on comment 5 [1], affects two different
components, so it should be splitted in two. Take into account that
one affects gdk-pixbuf and the other gail, and both components are
maintained by different persons, so having them in different patches
would make their live easier (and btw, now gdk-pixbuf lives in a
different repository).

For your information gtk+ has right now 3043 bugs, and gdk-pixbuf 138
(and the maintainer of gdk-pixbuf is also gtk+ maintainer), and right
now they are on the gtk+3 revamp, and stabilization towards GNOME 3.0,
so the conclusion that they don't review all the accessibility patches
because they don't care at all is wrong (IMHO). Ie, I already saw how
Matthias Clasen reviewed some gtk a11y-related patches.

So, please, split the patch, and be patient. Lets hope any of the gtk
reviewers could review that patch now.
