We need to better draw the analogy between i18n and a11y.  The main analogy is that just as GNOME developers have made i18n a core value, GNOME developers are making a11y a core value.  So, just as we have an l10n team for translation, we have an accessibility team for assistive technology support.  But, just as all developers do i18n, all GNOME developers work on a11y.

I think since most people don't know what i18n is, we are better just leaving it out.

We need to get the MoFo vs. MoCo thing right.  If I recall, Frank is with MoFo, but we need to make sure we attribute things correctly.  It may not seem like much to us, but I believe it is important. In looking at Frank's bio, he's listed as the Director of Grants and Programs with the Mozilla Foundation.  His bio also seems to indicate he's moved on -- -- I wasn't aware of this!

Stormy - are the monies coming from MoCo or MoFo?

Mozilla Foundation
