   cyril: I think we should switch to morning in europe

   Tav: doesn't work for the damn americans

   <ChrisL> lol

   cyril: doesn't work for east coste

   cabanier: what about west coast

   cyril: haha

   Tav: 1h later in europe one hour later in australia last year

   =01&year=2012&hour=20&min=00&sec=0&p1=0 shows 20.00 UTC May 1, 2012

      [8] http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?month=05&day=01&year=2012&hour=20&min=00&sec=0&p1=0

   krit: cabanier: 1 hour later is fine for us

   <ed> so, sydney 6am... maybe not great

   cabanier: 1 earlier is not that good for australia

   cyril: we should check with cameron

   krit: stay for now?

   ed: stay till 3 weeks when all countries switched

   cyril: 2 more weeks

   ed: keep the time for 2 more weeks

   … more discussions about time shift

   ed: no decision now?

   all: lets stay for the next 2 weeks

   resolution: keep the time for 2 weeks

   <scribe> ACTION: erik will send a mail for time shift and time
   change [recorded in

   <trackbot> Created ACTION-3245 - Will send a mail for time shift and
   time change [on Erik Dahlström - due 2012-03-15].

   next topic: template for tests

   ChrisL: mails on mailing list


     [10] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-svg-wg/2012JanMar/0142.html

   Tav: cameron said that html tag inside svg and try to add html
   inside svg you'' break

   ChrisL: cameron suggested a lot more chnages
   ... he seems to wnat to have a whole new layer

   Tav: link and meta are not part of svg

   ChrisL: we had a resolution to add them
   ... anyway we should ask peter
   ... wecould add it to our svg naemspace

   ed: html5's parsing algorithm would break out into html mode if we
   didn't parent the link and meta elements inside a foreignobject

   ChrisL: it seems to be a clear resolution that al changes might
   break html5 parsing. for those test we need something different

   Tav: cameron suggestions is a bit simplper

   ChrisL: i didn't like it

   <ChrisL> I think he has oversimplified and it will loose

   Tav: he is not removing anything
   ... he just implementes in another way
   ... he is just not put html5 into ahead


   Tav: th eproblem with meta tag.
   ... he still has a data tag

   Tach if an html5 parser finds a link in a svg tag

   ChrisL: what happens?

   Tav: I don't know

   ChrisL: html parser don't care about the tags at all
   ... a framwork in place to start writing tests
   ... otherwise they don't get it wrten

   ed: I prefer simplified structure
   ... no namespaces

   Tav: I agree

   ChrisL: we had the test criteria … where did it went?

   Tav: the test harness has to be modified to do that

   ChrisL: is that in the head and a meta
   ... simplicity is goood


   Tav: link to the different parts of the spec
   ... and which parts it needs to pass

   <Tav> [11]http://wiki.csswg.org/test/format

     [11] http://wiki.csswg.org/test/format

   Tav: test assertions:

   ChrisL: it is all in the content attribute
   ... no markup at all

   Tav: above in the spec links, there is a link that tells you what
   part of the spec gets tested

   ChrisL: thats fine

   <cyril> [12]http://w3c-test.org/framework/ seems broken

     [12] http://w3c-test.org/framework/

   <ed> the tags that break out of "foreign" mode (aka SVG in html):
   n (link is not among those)

     [13] http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/Overview.html#parsing-main-inforeign

   ChrisL: ok

   ed: meta does break out

   Tav: link is ok

   ed: yes

   Tav: you still need sth for the tags
   ... description is ok

   ed: could we use svg metadata element?


     [14] http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG/metadata.html

   ed: just sth to put test meta data on
   ... should be fine

   ChrisL: would be fine than
   ... peter should know what we want to do

   ed: metadata should replace meta eleemnt
   ... link lists all the tags that break out
   ... link element would get unknown svg element
   ... needs verification

   ChrisL: so no other namespace, no head
   ... just metadata?


     [15] http://software.hixie.ch/utilities/js/live-dom-viewer/?%3C!DOCTYPE%20html%3E%0D%0A%3Csvg%3E%0D%0A%3Clink%2F%3E%0D%0A%3Ccircle%20r%3D5%2F%3E%0D%0A%3C%2Fsvg%3E

   ed: I dont see a circle in opera and safari

   <ChrisL> <!DOCTYPE html>

   <ChrisL> <svg>

   <ChrisL> <link/>

   <ChrisL> <circle r=200>

   ChrisL: I see the circle in FF with this example

   Tav: I don't

   <ChrisL> ff11beta6

   ed: I don't see a circle either

   Tav: now I see
   ... I put a space before the slash


     [16] http://software.hixie.ch/utilities/js/live-dom-viewer/?%3C!DOCTYPE%20html%3E%0A%3Csvg%3E%0A%3Clink%2F%3E%0A%3Ccircle%20r%3D100%20%2F%3E%0A%3C%2Fsvg%3E

   cyril: we should move on

   ChrisL: we should have a decision

   ed: link is fine

   resolution: we will use the link element as proposed. Use metadata
   instead of head and meta

   <ed> example: instead of <meta name="flags" content="TOKENS" /> we
   will use <metadata name="flags" content="TOKENS" />

   Tav: what cameron sugeested with metadat


   Tav: basically


     [17] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-svg-wg/2012JanMar/0142.html

   ed: something else on his proposal

   Tav: yes, the very last thing
   ... that we diagree too
   ... other issues with copy right… a list that ChrisL sent

   ed: Tav'll send a final proposal to the list


     [18] http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/WG/wiki/SVG2/Testing_Requirements#Test_SVG_File_Template

   ed: peter should review

   ChrisL: ed can you edit the wiki?

   ed: ok

   <ChrisL> s/ ed can you edit the wiki?/I am editing the wiki

   ChrisL: metadata for flags


   <ed> <metadata name="flags" content="TOKENS" />

   Tav: the desc tag for the text description

   ed: should it be long or short descr?

   Tav: as long as you need/

   ChrisL: if we agree, than we ask peter

   Tav: ok
   ... what about copyright

   ed: use BSD for the suite

   ChrisL: put the license into one place and link to it

   Tav: I agree

   <scribe> ACTION: ChrisL will edit the wiki page and mention how to
   add license and copyright [recorded in

   <trackbot> Created ACTION-3246 - Will edit the wiki page and mention
   how to add license and copyright [on Chris Lilley - due 2012-03-15].

   Tav: what about revision?
   ... we have version controll system, so no extra revisions

   ChrisL: we don't put the number in the file
   ... not productive to do that
   ... the same for the test frame

   ed: agree

   Tav: I tried to add the testing to the rep, but it failed

   ed: ChrisLdo you edit the wiki and mention what we do about

   ChrisL: I will

   … discussion about problems for Tav to submit stuff

   ed: back to the requirements


     [20] http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/WG/wiki/SVG2/Testing_Requirements#Test_SVG_File_Template

Finishing SVG 2 Requirements


     [21] http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/WG/wiki/SVG2_Requirements_Input#Xlink_additional_attributes_on_the_.3Ca.3E_element

   ChrisL: we should drop xlink on <a>

   ed: xlink:role, xlink:arcrole and xlink:title:title might make sense

   ChrisL: title element is better than xlink:title
   ... we should use title element

   ed: no strong objections
   ... fine for ,e

   resolution: drop xlink attributes role, arcole, title

   <ChrisL> resolution: SVG2 will drop xlink attributes role, arcole,

   resolution: SVG 2 will drop the xlink attributes role, arcole, title

   1.2 tiny

   ChrisL: html5 has similar things
   ... we should compatible to html5

   ed: reasonable

   ChrisL: we should look at it in detail first
   ... needs an action
