Hi all,

Looking at the main page of the task force (http://www.w3.org/Graphics/fx/) and at the transforms related pages, I found several problems:

*         Mainly, it is very confusing to have all the links out-dated. This is not new. During TPAC, we had two resolutions (http://www.w3.org/2011/11/03-fx-minutes.html#item03):

o   We will publish a merged SVG/CSS/2D/3D spec as WD, and republish CSS 2D and CSS 3D with a note about the merged spec

o   We will republish the SVG Transforms module to obsolete it.

Both the SVG Transforms spec (http://dev.w3.org/SVG/modules/transforms/SVGTransforms.html) and the CSS 2D Transforms spec (http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-2d-transforms/) have been edited with the note. The CSS 3D spec has not been edited as far as I know. Vincent also had an ACTION-58 to "Make clear in the merged transforms spec that it hasn't yet replaced the separate specs" but I can't find the FX tracker and I don't know the status of the action. The spec has not been edited.

It would be good if we could update the drafts and publish quickly, or at least update the task force page and have 2 links per spec (published + editor's draft).

*         A link to the merged spec should be added.

*         The link to http://dev.w3.org/Graphics-FX/modules/2D-transforms/spec/2DTransforms.html should also be edited to point to the merged spec.

Finally, can someone tell me the status of this page: http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/WG/wiki/FX-Taskforce/2DTransformsToDoList ?
Is it also out dated? Which issues have been addressed? Which remain? Should the page be deleted and remaining issues integrated in the spec?
