libatspi, gobject-introspection and atspi+atk

  • Piñeiro raised the concern of doing two API ports in the ATs.
  • As Mike explained: "I think we need to decide whether we're going to switch to using atk for the AT-side, or figure out if it's feasible, and then decide what to do."
  • Mike also pointed out that there is the potential for some confusion, for instance Orca is both an ATK consumer and also uses a toolkit that implements ATK.
  • Conclusion: for now, the decision to deprecate pyatspi2 in favour of object-introspected atspi is postponed, until we investigate this more.
