No, we don't have gentoo docs for gnome and accessibility, mainly because we don't have someone  who knows both gnome and gnopernicus well enough, who uses it who can write the docs. I haven't had time to write them because I'm currently on dialup at home and don't plan on trying to install gnome over dialup, plus I've been waiting for freetts and gnome-speech to play nice so I have a synthasizer besides festival since festival and gnopernicus still have some issues with speech markers.

Yes the mozilla source in distfiles is the orrigional source. Any patches that are applied are generally found in /usr/portage/herd/packagename/files (unless the  patches are overly large)

I don't know if this applies to just gnome stuff, or other packages like mozilla etc. Maybe one of the gnome accessibility folks can answer this here? > > > > We have a gnome-accessibility herd that handles the accessibility issues that are related to gnome and gentoo. > > > > > > On Fri, 28 May 2004, Kenny Hitt wrote: > > > > > Date: Fri, 28 May 2004 07:19:35 -0500 > > > From: Kenny Hitt <kenny@×××××××××.net> > > > Reply-To: gentoo-accessibility@l.g.o > > > To: gentoo-accessibility@l.g.o > > > Subject: [gentoo-accessibility] building an accessible mozilla > > > > > > Hi.
