Last telcon Doug asked us to mail the list with comments/questions about
work items in the draft SVG WG charter that relate to FX documents.

First, it’s not clear to me looking at the FX charter what its charter
period is (or if that even makes sense for a taskforce).  I ask because
Pagination and Slides is listed as a (possible) FX document in the draft
SVG charter but not in the FX charter.  Does the FX taskforce need
rechartering to add this?

Here is my impression of the status of the various FX documents is.
Please correct/clarify as appropriate.

Filters: we have an FX Filters spec, and this is going to be the sole
spec going forward for SVG and CSS.  Is that right?

Compositing: we don’t have an FX spec yet.  Should we be moving the
Compositing spec to the FX repository?

Gradients: is this spec for future gradient types, or is it meant to
encompass existing linear/radial gradients, which are covered in
css3-images?  Is the FX taskforce happy to begin such a document?

2D Transforms: it looks like the plan here is to continue with separate
FX and CSS specs unless the FX spec has an active editor who can
progress the spec along quickly enough to satisfy CSS people.  Is that
the official point of view of the taskforce?

3D Transforms: I’m not sure what our plan is here.  Do we have an editor
who can pull together an FX version of the spec to encompass CSS and SVG

Parameters: we have an SVG draft, but not an FX draft.  Parameters is
listed in the FX charter.  Should we be moving this over; is the
taskforce ready to work on this?

Pagination and Slides: I don’t think we’ve really discussed this spec
much in SVG or at all in FX.

Layout: I don’t think we have a clear plan forward for this spec, or
whether the FX taskforce is aware of what we might like to do with it.

Web Animation: I know that this was mentioned at the Auckland F2F, but I
am unsure what this document would contain, or whether the CSS members
of the FX TF are on top of this.

So I’d like to be clear on where we are and where we plan to be with all
of these specs and to document our plan on the FX wiki and in the SVG
charter.  I want the SVG and CSS WGs and thus the FX taskforce to have a
common understanding on this.
