Quick status is it's working but not yet completely clean to submit.
Lacking: JIT (completely disabled until i can test & narrow down the
combinations for it) and any *GL* acceleration (no spare/useful hardware
to test).
Details: midori 0.5.9 & webkit-gtk 2.4.8, can't use anything newer so
easily because the API changed and midori isn't compatible.
gtk2 & gtk3 working (gtk2 is always required, with webkit-gtk 2.6+ it
can be ditched but you loose plugin ability with that option).
I'm pondering packaging separate versions of webkit-gtk and adding
epiphany (now known as just "web") that can use the newer version, in
theory with almost no gnome-proper dependencies.
Thomas has being applying my assorted patches that are leading to this,
but it's still some work away from being submission-ready.
And it's being done in free time, so don't hold your breath.
