Dear webkit stakeholders
Back in july, Pleyo announced a new port of Webkit, not onto a
specific platform but over an Abstraction Layer that we called OwBAL
and which lets us address specific needs which do not perfectly fit
with the "platform" approach. Actually, our goals are to be able to
adapt WebKit not to a platform, but a set of libraries which can be
all-but-one identical, or completely different, or whatever. Platform
approach makes sense when porting to a comprehensive environment, but
it does not address our needs. So that platform made big parts of the
code redundant for us.
Today, our abstraction code is almost mature and we'd like to move it
back to webkit.org. I believe that since our changes are quite
intrusive in many parts of webcore, jscore and platform, a branch
could be a good start where we could put the code so that we can start
advocating some (if not all) of our changes to eventually end up being
part of webkit trunk.
Can anyone tell me how to process?
