This is my (in)activity log. You might like to visit my employer
Novell which is an amazing company, and also
Dell who in days of yore provided me with a
free laptop for Gnome development / conferences.
Also if you have the time to read this sort of stuff you could enlighten
yourself by going to Unraveling Wittgenstein's net or if
you are feeling objectionable perhaps here.
Stuff Michael Meeks is doing
- Chewed mail, worked at a better at-spi
solution, posted that.
- Hit an incredibly stupid, amazingly badly
designed thing in AtkObjectFactory - just staggering
badness - lost for words.
- Set about brute force overriding all calls
to GtkWidget's get_accessible to use a sane type map,
and fall back to the broken one - hopefully we can get
this into Gail.
- After some more mature thought, discussing
it with Owen etc. it seems that using the existing
AtkObjectFactory stuff is almost always a mistake.
- Got my BonoboUIToolbarSeparators to behave
like separators - excellent, at last. Posted results to
the a11y list, and got on with more interesting things.
- Did some more at-poke work, we now detect
and update correctly when applications start and stop
/ die and handle poking inside their innards more
gracefully. Updated the selection code to work, but
somehow the at-spi side is not working.
- Got a request for more 'self-help'
articles, also got a demand for Dock keynav for Gnome
2.0, a fair bit of work there it seems. Did a little
self-help hacking. Bed.
In case it's not painfully obvious: the reflections reflected here are my
own; mine, all mine ! and don't reflect the views of Novell, The
Lithuanian Gov't or Arnold Schwarzenegger. It's also important to
realise that I'm not in on the Swedish Conspiracy.
Occasionally people ask for formal photos for conferences,
