Meeting Minutes

Topic 1: IA2 Relicensing

JS: meeting between Janina, Karen Copenhaver, Jim Zemlin, Ted Ts'o - Janina combing through minutes to determine from whom to get permission

WW: please include Malte

JS: waiting for KarenC for suggested language



Topic 2: Formal Relationship with AIA

JS: concerns about participation and disclosure of what AIA might not want disclosed - not a good fit for LF/AIA (open versus fairly closed) - KarenC will be talking to Microsoft about that



Topic 3: AT-SPI over DBus Update

For Reference:

WW: Mark Doffman working on device event controller and some code isworking

WW: some Java work underway, about 8 weeks so far, expect a Q2 beta,migrating Java from CORBA bindings to ATK directly through JNI, then will pick up DBus changeover for free

WW: speech - gnome 3.0 will ditch corba, this will impact speech, Luke Yelavich at Canonical wants to get speech fixed

WW: magnification - nothing happening, there is a longer term potential to get Aegis dollars

BT: looking into atspi dbus, no cspi dependency



Topic 4: Website Update

Linux Foundation's New Content Management System (CMS) Interface

  • David Ames' announcement of the new content management system
    • GJR notes and caveats:
      • WARNING: You will receive an invalid site certificate error when you attempt to access the beta version of the Linux Foundation's new CMS because the certificate is for linuxfoundation.org and not beta.linuxfoundation.org
      • there is a "Skip to Navigation" link, but not a "Skip to Main Conents" link
      • there are some un-alt-texted graphics on the LF's portal page
      • the back-end needs XHTML Roles and ARIA markup to increase accessibility and put the LF site on the cutting edge of what assistive technologies can do with landmarks, roles and ARIA
        • Status: in progress
