The main difficulty besides lacking time is meeting the quality standards of the 
WebKit project. Our WebKit/Gtk+ port is not using the LayoutTest regression 
suite yet(I have started working on it, time is the limitation there), and we 
have no GUnit coverage of the API.

This makes it very hard to judge what is going to break. Besides that we 
should probably have more Gtk+ reviewers as Alp and me sadly don't have the 
time for WebKit that would be needed.


PS: I'm also interested in options to increase the time I have for webkit
