Is there an agenda? Would be great to know what gets discussed when. Especially since some are in the European timezone.

Unless I hear otherwise by the end of today, I'll ask W3C admin to mark
our meeting as Thursday only. That way we can all be around on the same

That works for me, though I have a conflict Thursday afternoon.

I can try to put together an agenda with Bogdan.

Technical items I'm aware of:
* AAM editor (we have a volunteer, thank you Ian!) and outlining what's
to be done
* addressing existing issues

In particular, identifying the highest priority ones and also deciding whether any existing issues should be deferred to a later version.

* test planning
* spec pruning, identify unimplemented items to drop from 2.0

Sounds good to me.

As I probably won't be able to follow the discussion in irc I would like to give a brief statement on Inkscape's status on items in SVG 2 that we are particularly want to use or are using. We have implemented:

* Text: Wrapping via 'shape-inside' and 'inline-size'. Basic rendering via 'shape-inside' is in our last public release. More complex rendering via 'shape-inside' and rendering of 'inline-size' is in our development code. We have GUI code that hasn't been merged yet for both. There is some work that needs to be done to round-trip SVG 2 text output that includes SVG 1.1 fallback. Our intentions is that the GUI code will be in our next public release.
* Meshes: Both rendering and GUI for creating (available in our last public release). Note there are also two independent polyfills for meshes.
* Hatches: Rendering but not in GUI.
* Styling:
** 'fill'/'stroke' context-fiil andd context-stroke: Implemented in public release.
** 'marker-orientation' 'auto-start-reverse': Implemented in public release.
** 'white-space': Implemented in public release.
** 'vector-efffect': 'non-scaling-stroke': Implemented in public release.
** 'text-decoration-fill', etc.: Implemented in public release.
** 'font-variant-ligatures', etc.: Implemented with GUI in public release.
* etc.

I have tons of test created while these were being implemented that I can convert to reftests. I've started doing so at:


I'm committed to providing tests for all the features that Inkscape considers important.
