Hi David,

(in case you don't know since I post from my private email, I am Pascal 
Chevrel, I am Web l10n project manager for mozilla.org)

You may be interested in knowing that I organized a "web accessibility" 
meetup a couple of weeks ago in the Paris office along with people from 
the web accessibility world in France. It resulted in a Firefox 
regression bug for a11y being identified and fixed (thanks to Mounir 
Lamouri) in nightlies, planned for Firefox 13: 
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=720130

I sent the news about the creation of this mailing list to the main 
accessibility working group in France (April), in case some of them are 
interested in participating.

Regards,

Pascal
