[lsb-discuss] [Fwd: new ATK/AT-SPI test suite in development]

Hi George,
	I took a quick look at this. I think the test development is on
the right track as far as I can tell. 

Unfortunately I could not get it running on my RHEL4 and SLED10 box? I
was able to build, but the journal is showing all 6 tests as failures.
Can you update the readme so that I can build and run this with LSB TET
packages? More instructions regarding both building and running will be

Sorry to take this long to reply...
