pushing out to the archive.

There will be audio for the past Monday's TTS API meeting.

Janina briefly discussed CSUN for next year.  We don't need a booth.
Call for papers is a while off.  We will discuss later.

FSG requesting booth volunteers for LinuxWorld in Boston and San


What is the status of the keyboard specification?
Bill to look at the source to see if the latest changes have
been incorporated.  We need volunteers to summarize the compliance 
of current Linux distributions and/or desktops.

The ATSPI reached a consensus on new use cases and designs, and the
group decided to move onto implementation.

For the Desktop Developer's Conference in Ottawa.  Looking for topics
and funding to have a meeting.

For LinuxWorld in San Francisco, we could work on finishing the keyboard
functional specification, or work on the keyboard ABI.

LDTP and Dogtail which use ATSPI were mentioned as interesting topic to
learn about.
