Java ATK Wrapper: GSoC

Glad to say my java-atk-wapper project was selected for summer of code this year!

Backstory: before I took the java-atk-wrapper on last year it had been abandoned since 2011 so when I took it over I found I was getting a lot of emails from users demanding it be fixed. I can't blame them for feeling that way; There are lots of bugs to fix and lots of work to do to get this module up to scratch...

Obviously, I already have established a "game-plan" for the bringing the wrapper up to speed for GSoC and beyond but I do aways welcome any feedback bug reports, patches or and testing anyone from the community wishes to share.

To file bugs simple head to https://bugzilla.gnome.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=java-atk-wrapper
To discuss the wrapper as a user head to: https://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/gnome-accessibility-list
To discuss the wrapper as a developer head to: https://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/gnome-accessibility-devel

Those in the UK - don't forget to vote for what you believe in on 7th of May. Also, that a vote for Tories is a vote for evil (their benefit sanctions have literally implicated Ian Duncan Smith in the deaths of at least 60 people during their reign) oh and, a vote for Labour is much of the same (they started it). Don't even get me started on the Lib Dems...

Peace out.
