Meeting this week?

19 works better for me.  I am afraid I don't have any Braille devices for
testing.  I have built latest gnopernicus 1.0 and tested with freetts/newest
gnome-mag packages.  My testing seemed to be ok.  Changelogs show some
improvements in Braille and aesthetics.

Doesn't gnopernicus get updated in gnome development?  It is part of the
gnome desktop tree no?  I suppose debian/ubuntu handles non-critical gnome
packages differently, but I believe gnome brought gnopernicus into the tree
around 2.4.

NEW packages (which never were in Ubuntu before) can wait until
FeatureFreeze - package updates have to be done before (or need
exceptions). 'gnopernicus' is still a problematic case, since it needs a
newer brltty, which has some big changes. I think I'm going to upload
them - if stuff breaks too hard, we can still roll back. I'd still need
testers (since I don't have any Braille devices), but I'll make that a
separate call on the list.

Same here.

Have a nice day,
