The above sentences are in some parts not correct. (Maybe I used a wording
that produced some misunderstandings.) I would like to change them in the
minutes to:

The people from the KDE project are currently not doing much on AT-SPI. It
is planned that the basic support for AT-SPI is integrated into Qt.
(Adding the accessibility information to KDE can only be done after Qt has
some basic support for that.) Trolltech has announced that they see AT-SPI
support as a key feature of Qt 4.0.

(Maybe we can include a second "Gunnar-" here in order to separate two
different subjects.)

The above sentence needs a correction, too. The person that I spoke of is
 a Trolltech developer.
