Re: gnome-orca_3.11.92-1_amd64.changes ACCEPTED into experimental

Hey Mario.

I think it is uber-awesome that this upgrade was chosen. And I really
don't want to discourage you from doing it. <grins> But I feel
obligated to point out that because you all going to start shipping
Orca 3.10.x (to replace the ancient 3.4.x) I am planning to do another
3.10 release which includes this fix and a few others which are
simple, safe, and important. The changes are already in the gnome-3-10
branch upstream should you be interested in knowing what they are.
I'll probably roll that tarball the same time I do the 3.12.0 one.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks.
