Re: gnome-orca_3.0.4-1_i386.changes ACCEPTED into experimental

Hi.  Currently, sid has some gnome 3 packages and the rest are gnome 2.30.
Using the corba based at-spi (at-spi 1.0) I had no problems with orca 3.0.
My problem only started when I updated to at-spi 2.0.  I can return to at-spi 1.0 easily, but I thought I'd
try at-spi 2.0 to get an idea of it's usability.
Based on what I've read on other lists, I expected some issues but it should have provided some feedback.
The fact I get nothing makes me think I'm either missing a package or a config option.
