Hi Alan

Well done mate.

Extra tit-bit of information that may come in handy when talking at the
national level.

The Assistive Technologies Infrastructure within Gnome has been jointly
developed by Sun Microsystems Inc, IBM, and community developers.  We are
all aware that various high profile brands contribute to various projects,
including the kernal, but the point I'm trying to emphasise is that there
are "proper" developers as well as "community" developers involved.  Would
such companies authorise such involvement if they didn't see this as a  ....
argh can't think of the word .... business direction?
