<aaronlev> But I think a main thing is to allows the user to arrow around and
select items in the calendar grid
<aaronlev> and get context menus with shift+f10

Please see:

I can help advise on multiple discontiguous selection with the keyboard when
someone starts working on this bug.

Is it still valid? Can it be closed?
No, it can not be closed. It is still very valid.

I think this would make a nice student project, description may follow soon. If this hasn't happened by the time you are interested, please contact me.
Keywords: student-project
Bug 472448 would probably also make a nice candidate
Depends on: 472448
A group of three students from Brazil in a course about open source is going to be working on this bug as a student-project. Looking forward to your patch(es), thanks Eduardo!

Taking this off the beta list, there are enough accessibility bugs on the 1.0 blocking list, its unlikely we can achieve full accessibility in that timeframe.

I don't quite get this bug. Does "Make calendar keyboard accessible" mean keyboard short-cut? Could someone please elaborate more? I'm interested in this bug. Thanks!:)
Anybody working on it yet? (looks like this has been here for a long time)
If not, I might be interested.

If possible, I'd prefer to work this out under GSOC 2015. Is it ok to put it up for GSOC 2015? 
Some things to consider:
1. Project wide enough for the summer. Has to be handled by a single student.
2. A Mentor is required. Mentor gets USD 500 from Google.

If it is suitable for GSOC and a mentor is found, I'll be willing to put it up on the Brainstorming[1] wiki.

Mentors/QA Contacts/anybody else in charge, reply please.

EDIT to comment #10,

Mentoring Organisation (in this case Mozilla) gets USD 500 from Google.
Hey Abhishek, I'm pretty sure this is a good idea for a project, I'll have to take a look at the current state though to double check. You can go ahead and put it up on the brainstorming page and set me as a mentor, I will hash out the actual mentorship once the deadline approaches. We are two mentors for Calendar right now, so any two of the three projects will be chosen given we get the slots. I may be able to find a third mentor if we surpisingly get three slots.

If you want to contact me on IRC, my nickname is Fallen. I'll leave the needinfo field set so I don't forget, but feel free to nag me any time or ask questions when I am around.

Thanks for the fast reply. I just applied for Editorship on Mozilla Wiki (so it will take some time) If possible, can you put it up yourself. I'd be highly grateful. If you are busy, then I'll try and put it up as soon as I can, or get someone else to put it up! Thanks again.

Another thing, when can I catch you on IRC? (time zone, your free hours, etc.)
I don't remember what we last discussed here, but as you know Mozilla is not part of GSoC. Would you still be interested in working on it?

Yes sure. Would you like me to start now? If it is better done over a continuous time frame of ~2 months, then my summer vacations (from June first week) would be perfect. If you want to start now, that would be a bit tight though.

There is no bound on when you should complete this, since its not a Summer of Code project anymore, just a simple voluntary contribution. You can get started right away as it fits into your schedule, there is no deadline on when it should be done.

First I'd suggest going through the list of dependent bugs. Some of them might be fairly easy and can be done when you have a free hour or two in the evenings, for example bug 260121. That also has the advantage that you don't have a pressure to learn everything about the Lightning codebase at once but can gradually get started.

You probably know this, but this is a just a meta bug, the bugs to be fixed should be marked blocking this bug. I think the only one in the blocking list or http://mzl.la/1XISplL ** marked as "good first bug" is bug 736071. But perhaps fallen or someone he nominates can point you to other good starter bugs. There may even be ones with draft patches

** And there may be other accessibility candidates in https://mzl.la/2d005PO - which lists bugs that have the string "accesssibility".  Any which are valid accessibilty issues should get the access keyword and marked blocking this bug.

Yes, please email me if you need help getting started. Working on accessibility bugs requires some understanding of the ARIA standard and willingness to learn about XUL and XBL. I can help you get started there, but some self-learning will be required.
