Rencontres Mondiales du Logiciel Libre (RMLL) / Libre Software Meetings (LSM), Montpellier, France, 5-11 July 2014: website.

In order to reach out to the open-source community (or communities), it would be nice to submit a proposal for a hackathon to an open-source conference such as RMLL. In such a hackathon, open-source developers would be taught how to integrate their projects into GPII. Ideally, we should find and contact projects with accessibility features and a community that would be willing to work on GPII integration. Add your ideas to the table below. (We can get some ideas from osalt.com and the open source accessibility repository created by the AEGIS project.)
