    <scribe> scribenick: shepazu


    ed_work: I will send out an agenda for the telcon next thursday


       [9] http://www.w3.org/TR/SVGTiny12/coords.html#TransformList

    shepazu: it would be good to have specific issues to discuss, rather
    than broader topics

    <ed> [11]http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/WG/wiki/Agenda#For_the_FX_TF

      [11] http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/WG/wiki/Agenda#For_the_FX_TF

    ed: other things to discuss?

    shepazu: administrivia?
    ... XSL-FO is interested in many of the same topics that will be
    covered in FX... gradients, transforms, text wrapping
    ... small group, might not have much bandwidth
    ... but we should coordinate with them

    ChrisL: both SVG and XSL use XML syntaxes, which should help there

    shepazu: I've request a tracker instance for #fx, and a telcon slot,
    x3983 (FXTF)
    ... need to clarify in each instance which of Doug, Chris, or Eric
    will communicate with the CSS WG

SVG IG Japan

    shepazu: SVG IG Japan is interested in moving to the next stage with
    their SVG Tiling and Layering Map spec

    ChrisL: an IG can't do Rec-track work, which means this would have
    to be a member submission
    ... which has IPR considerations

    shepazu: one possible problem is that KDDI is no longer a W3C Member
    ... but the spec looks interesting to me

    <ChrisL> and the non-Member authors would need to fill in RF IPR

    ChrisL: there is some important functionality this would provide,
    like Level of Detail
    ... and Load on Demand

    <ChrisL> LoD can mean both Level of Detail and Load on Demand. The
    latter is the way to get the former

    ChrisL: I think there is general interest, and others might join in
    the work

    shepazu: which would likely mean changes to the spec
    ... needs more review
    ... is this something browser vendors would be interested in

    ed: I think at least some of it would be interesting to Opera, would
    have to see more details

    <ed> there might be some partial overlap with css media queries,
    which can also be used for some cases of LOD, e.g



    Chris: charter ending in April
    ... need to get an extension

    shepazu: I've got a draft charter, still needs work

    ChrisL: maybe Mapping could be added to the new charter

    draft charter ->

    ed: what's the status with MS as host?

    shepazu: I think the ball is in our court

    <ed> May 24 - 26 and May 31 - June 1 (hosted by Microsoft), with May
    31 as an open F2F meeting with Libre Graphics community

    ed: have we confirmed with LGM

    ChrisL: I think so

    shepazu: I will reconfirm

    trackbot, end telcon
