In Ubuntu, we need to maintain a stable branch of webkitgtk+ for 5 years
for our upcoming LTS. That is from Apr 2012 to Apr 2017. We'll be
using the webkitgtk+ 1.8 branch since it's the most recent with GTK2 and
GTK3 support. I'd like to find other like minded people to help

that would be helpful for 3.5 years or so (6 months until wheezy
