Re: GNOME 2.28 Press Release - Quotes Needed

Hi All:

I've been purposely quiet on the accessibility front. GNOME 2.28 saw some good solid changes for accessibility, but our big change is going to happen with GNOME 3.0 and the removal of CORBA. For GNOME 3.0, I'd also like to try to roll in some of the HFOSS work that was done this past summer.

I think a comment about WebKit accessibility for GNOME 2.28 would be great, but we also need to be sure that Xan and Igalia are committed to seeing the effort through. That is, a lot of good was done, but a fair amount of work remains. So, GNOME 3.0 again may be the place where we can really announce that WebKit a11y is for real.

I'm going to blog about this as well, but for the GNOME 2.28 release

think it was Stormy's idea).

I need help with whom we should be asking for quotes from.
Applications with updates featured in the release notes include
gnome-bluetooth (Bastien), Empathy, Epiphany, Evince, Cheese and
gnome-volume-manager (Bastien again).

I would ask John Wendell (jwendell gnome org) about empathy-vino-vinagre
integration together with an Empathy hacker, the reason being that this
would help raise awareness that we are global and not only
northern-hemisphere based :-).

Cheese got a new contributor during this cycle iirc, Daniel (cc) should

Epiphany wasn't really end-user exciting imho, we only switched backends and tried to not break much in the process. But Xan (cc) can perhaps say
something about how good progress in a11y was made working with Joan

That's some ideas :-)
