Hi, Folks-

While we were focusing on getting SVG Tiny 1.2 finished, we were
dedicating both weekly telcons to the matter.  But originally, the
reason for having 2 telcons was for different subjects: one for SVG
Full, and one for SVG Tiny.

Now that we are done with SVG Tiny 1.2 (more or less), I think it would
be productive for us to return to a similar division.  I suggest that we
have one telcon for handling errata, tests, issues raised on the public
list, and other maintenance tasks, and devote the other to progressive
work, such as the modules.

I spoke with Chris, and he has been working anew on the Vector Effects
module.  Similarly, Cam has produced some use cases and requirements for
the Layout module [1], and we discussed that a bit.  Erik is quite far
along on Filters, and Anthony has got the Compositing and the 2.5D
modules on his plate.  I would like to give all of those serious
consideration and dedicated time, perhaps a whole telcon on each, or
perhaps pick one or two to talk about at any given telcon.

In addition, we have other people, from the Inkscape and WebKit worlds,
who are interested in participating on an as-needed basis, to do things
like the shaped-gradients/diffusion curves that are much in demand.  If
we have a dedicated time for them to join in, we can avoid alienating
them with the drudgery and use their expertise where it will do the most
good.

I would suggest that we pick Mondays as our maintenance day, since Cam
seems quite keen on tracking down such tasks, and Thursdays as our
progress day, with Erik chairing.

What do y'all think?
