Hi, SVG Community-

The W3C and the SVG WG are pleased to announce that the SVG Working 
Group has been rechartered as a public Working Group.  Going forward, 
the public will be able to read all our technical email, teleconference 
chat logs, and Issues and Action (though there may be a short transition 
time while we get everything set up).  We hope that this will help us be 
more responsive to the needs of the community, and will provide an 
opportunity for more feedback.  As the Web community grows, W3C is 
adapting to provide leadership and aid, and this openness is part of 
that effort.

Co-chairs Erik Dahlström (Opera Software ASA) and Andrew Emmons (W3C 
Invited Experts) will continue their exceptional helmsmanship for the 
SVG WG, and I will be the W3C Team Contact.

Feel free to visit our new Working Group home page (still in progress) 
[1] and read our new charter [2] to find out what we plan for the next 
couple of years.  You can also read the new public SVG WG mailing list, 
prosaically named public-svg-wg@w3.org [3], and continue to send 
questions and comments to www-svg@w3.org [4].

In addition, we have launched an SVG Interest Group.  This is a bit of 
an experiment in community activity to help us drive the use cases and 
requirements for future growth of SVG.  We hope to engage professional 
designers, developers, and other expert focus groups in short-term 
meetings and exchanges to make sure that SVG meets the needs of the 
community and the market, and to consult with regarding preferred 
solutions to specific problems.  We will be announcing more details 
soon, but since this is a community effort, please feel free to review 
the SVG IG charter [5], and give us your feedback on how we can 
effectively shape the SVG IG.

We are very excited by this new phase of SVG's development, and we are 
grateful to the community that has made it successful.  Let's set our 
sights high and help it grow even more in the coming years!
