I'd like to discuss some ideas about SVG advocacy on existing projects. 
I know building new things is a lot of fun but I remember last year Jeff 
brought up some ideas about contributing to existing SVG projects. Maybe 
we could extend that idea a little.

People work better in groups so I'm thinking about something not too 
formalized, barcamp-style. If we work with existing user groups for 
software projects like Wordpress, Drupal, Wikimedia, Joomla, etc, maybe 
we could get a few attendees in a large metro area (Chicago comes to 
mind) to spend a day hacking on improving support for svg in an 
application people are already working on. It doesn't have to be code, 
it could be documentation, artwork or bug triaging.

I have a couple ideas on this so if we can talk about it on the call 
maybe together we can come up with a plan.
