Hi everyone.

* Quoting http://www.svg.org/story/2006/1/18/11045/7257:

  After a discussion between Jonathan Watt of Mozilla's SVG team and
  myself at SVG Open last year, we came to the conclusion that it would
  be a good idea if implementors could collaborate on test cases, since
  the W3C SVG test suite is not as comprehensive as it could be.  As a
  result, I've started the Open SVG Test Suite[1], which I hope will
  foster greater conformance and interoperability between SVG renderers
  and browsers.
  
  Since the project has just started, I'm looking for people's opinions
  on all aspects of the test suite.  I hope that all implementors
  and other interested people can join the mailing list[2] to begin
  discussing issues related to the project!

* Quoting http://www.svgtest.org/archives/discussion/2006-January/000000.html:

  I'd like to point out that I'm not trying to subvert the WG's work on
  their test suite with this project.  I know that Chris said at SVG Open
  last year that they would work on opening up their test suite a bit
  more, but I imagine there would still be some sort of administrative
  overhead from their end in terms of accepting tests from the public.
  Hopefully if this project is successful, and an appropriately liberal
  licence is used, the tests could feed back into the WG's one at some
  point.

Thanks,

Cameron
