Previous meeting minutes are outstanding, so approval will wait.

Olaf Schmidt not present to discuss what ABIs to standardize.

PROPOSAL:  Implement SPI ABI per the ATSPI IDL.  Other languages
bindings and widget sets can be added on demand.

DECISION: Wait and see regarding Ancestor Collection, and possibly add

DECISION: Search boundaries does not search into embedded collections;
	therefore, search does not work on many other objects.
	Would not recurse across process boundaries.
	managesDecendants object should implement ATK collection,
	but not in the bridge.

getNextChild collects from that point.

getPreviousChild collects from the top to a point.

Implementation for Collection will not happen in time for Gnome 2.16,
so we will implement early in the Gnome 2.18 cycle.  This will allow 
pleanty of testing time.


getActiveDesendants should have managesDecendants state for Collection
via AtkCollect.  Look at Table enhancements some more...

DECISION: Add AtkHyperlinkIface (or similar) with method getHyperlink
or make that interface proxy the get hyperlink.
