Re: Gnome special days

We also really need to figure out how to handle accelerators and locales.
I know a lot of translators have problems deciding the keybindings for
their locale, and just using the English ones often doesn't make sence as
people cannot remember them....for instance alt+o for open makes sence for
English people, but not for Alt+å might make sence instead.

Translators just don't have time to check for confricts, and that is a
huge problem

Well, just a side note,

Hi, GNOME hackers!

	I had an idea! (Oooh!)

	GNOME projects has "bug days", as does Nautilus.

keyboard shortcuts (like in Micro$oft apps). Most GNOME applications simply
don't have alt-key shortcuts. Actually, GNOME is almost unusable without a

	- Small Screen Day - to make GNOME applications less

	- Slow machine day - Yes! Improve performance!

	We must be able to view things in various points of view to make
things more usable and accessible.

	Well, it's just a suggestion. :-)
