Hi All:

Nice discussion today.  Here's a follow up on the discussion we had to 
hit the 2.29.2 goal listed in http://live.gnome.org/TwoPointTwentyseven 
(Nov 16): "GNOME 2.29.2 - New a11y infrastructure must be in place. If 
there will be regressions we define them now and clearly announce them 
in advance for 3.0."

** Push to GNOME git - move the current code to the GNOME git 
repository.  This probably should be done first so we can all check in 
code changes much more easily.  (Mark)

* GNOME Build Integration: need to make sure the GNOME release builds. 
It's OK to have the old and new at-spi listed as dependencies for now. 
FredP says he will help as soon as we can get him a pointer.

* Reentrancy fix needs to get checked in. (Mark has this ready to go in 
his personal git branch)

* AT-SPI/CORBA scaffolding -- need to get the pyatspi.pth and GTK_PATH 
*.desktop stuff in place and a new gconf schema for the 
/desktop/gnome/interface/at-spi-corba (or whatever we call it) setting. 
(Willie will work with Li on this)

* L10n - need to migrate whatever i18n stuff there is in the old to the 
new stuff (e.g., localized role names).  (Willie)

* Schema duplication issue -- both the old and new use the 
/desktop/gnome/interface/accessibility key.  The new should ship a 
schema for this.  Don't know if there is an issue with duplication. (Willie)

* Disable CSPI build in the new stuff.  It doesn't work and it also 
conflicts with the old stuff. (Mark)

* Rename at-spi-registryd in the new stuff to at-spi2-registryd.  (Mark)

* Move the D-Bus xml files to the new standard location. (Mark)

* Move dbind/droute from core to atk and make it statically linked. 
This eliminates the need for extra stuff on the install.  (Mark)

* Bug crawl for various stuff (e.g., clients automatically reconnect to 
registryd if it restarts).  (All)

Did I miss anything?
