I am sorry but I couldn't make it to todays meeting.

I want to inform though what I know about SVG Open and SVG Plugin for IE.

SVG Open:
I did not hear back from Brad Neuberg (Google) - but he is still on
holidays. I am expecting an answer next week. I forwarded you an inquiry
from China regarding SVG Open 2009 or 2010. I don't think it would be a
good idea to hold SVG Open 2009 in China, but depending on what you think
it may or may not be an option for 2010. I will inform you as soon as I
know more.

SVG plugin for IE:
currently the most promising lead in this direction is using Mozilla SVG
for the plugin. Jonathan Watt could work on this (from december on), but
he still doesn't have official backing by the Mozilla management. Jonathan
thinks that the project needs to have official backing to make it an
official Mozilla supported project. Otherwise support and security updates
can't be guaranteed and it wouldn't be accepted by organizations to
install. I think he is right on this. It seems like our next step should
be to convince Mozilla management that it is worthwile to spend some
resources (manpower, marketing) on the SVG in IE project.

Sorry for my absence in the IRC meeting ...
