before starting with this mail I'd like to say thank you to all of you who
are making this possible :)

I've been meticulously testing the PMT under Fedora 20 (within the pilots2
developments) and here are some feedback that could be specially
interesting for the pilot sites.

Most of the settings that are included in the PMT are working fine, found a
few issues I'd like to mention, but as a resume, it seems to be working
pretty good and IMVHO almost ready for the pilots - yay!

In relation with the PMT, I opened these two JIRAs:

- Punctuation marks' box becomes unusable after applying changes (
- Problem with magnifier's docked-top option (

Also, I realized that "Volume" allows values higher than volume's common
term value range, if I use a value higher than 100, ALSA's setting handler
doesn't seem to work. So here's a question, where should we fix this
problem? in the settings handler, in the solution registry (ie: by defining
a maxValue in volume's transformation), in the PMT?

In relation with Fedora 20:

- When changing the cursor-size, Firefox (and other apps such as
gnome-terminal) doesn't use the new established value for cursor size :/.
AFAIK, the problem is out of our hands, looks like it's related to this
report against GTK+ (https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=696428)
- Although the "Show crosshairs" is being included in the resulting NP set
when using the PMT, it doesn't work in Fedora 20 due to a bug in GNOME
Shell. I've already reported it and provided a patch to fix it in Fedora
20, hopefully, it'll be included in time for the pilots (
