Uh, people haven't had time to work on these?

I'm working on this.  The patch is not really right (it doesn't make
sense to focus a scrolled window).

This one is rather particular.  You initially reported it as #138736 in
April.  Then Padraig asked whether ATs are able to use the single
column's title as the object name, and he got no reply.

Later, in June, David reported the same bug as #144405, and Padraig
promptly submitted a patch.  I marked it as a duplicate of the previous
bug, but didn't have time to look at the patch until today.

The issue is not getting a reply for the first bug.

I guess I'll work on this one soon.  This bug pisses me off.


It's pretty ridiculous to advertise a toolkit that supports accesibility
without having a full-time person dedicated to it.  We get a bunch of
a11y bugs from Sun (that's a good thing), and sporadic patches (that's
not so good).  But since we have no a11y experts in the GTK+ team, then
sometimes people don't know if a patch is really right.

Have you considered committing someone from Sun to work on GTK+'s a11y
close to full-time?
