GSoC Ideas

  • At the last meeting (2 weeks ago) we discussed the need to figure out if we as a team would be participating in GSoC this year.
  • In particular, our "homework" was to figure out candidate project ideas for Marina and the other organizers.
  • Joanie thinks we should consider putting the gnome-shell mag caret and focus tracking on the candidate list.

  • The team agrees to propose the focus/caret tracking functionality for gnome-shell as a GSOC project.
  • This is a device that runs within gnome-shell that tracks these event and notifies insterested parties (also within gnome-shell).
  • A primary interested party is gs-mag.
  • ACTION: joanie to write the short blurb describing the project and add that to SummerOfCode2013/Ideas.

  • focus/caret tracker requirements are: JavaScript. Recommended: knowledge of at-spi, especially handling of events.

W3C Update

  • No substantial news on the W3C front.


  • Juanjo was not present, so no updates.

Miscellaneous Time

  • Joanie hates kernel panics

Action Items

Ongoing / Rolled-Over

  • Joanie:
    • Do a full evaluation of the accessibility breakage in Evolution 3.6 and file bugs accordingly.
  • Juanjo:
    • Take a look at the current a11y material in order to make an action plan.
  • Piñeiro:
    • Ping GNOME designers, so hopefully some default keybinding will be available for 3.8.
    • Do a review with Orca to ensure that all the labels are in place, and probably a general review would be required.
    • Create some usability-configurability related bugs, using Bryen's mail as a starting point.
    • Update the AtkObject:children-changed documentation, as this could be also used on ATK implementors.
