Hello svg-wg,

we agreed in the telcon last week[1] to "freeze" the SVG 1.1 testsuite at  
the end of September, 2010. This is so that we can start producing the  
implementation report which is needed for SVG 1.1 Second Edition. What  
this means is that we'll compile a list of the accepted tests, and start  
testing implementations against this set of tests.

We will not include draft tests in the implementation report, only tests  
that have been reviewed and accepted by the WG, and if it's possible we  
might limit the report to include only the new(or changed) tests since the  
2006 testsuite release. Tests that are needed for testing changes in the  
second edition spec should be prioritized for review, I'll send out the  
list of the tests that are in need of review shortly (ACTION-2872).

Note: this is not to discourage test submissions, but we need a deadline  
for finishing in time for the TPAC meeting. Nothing prevents us from  
adding to the testsuite over time, and there will no doubt be future  
releases of the SVG testsuite.
