[CSSWG] Summary and Resolutions F2F: Logistics, Charter and New Modules (Apple's proposals, GCPM, vertical text)


   * Discussed F2F meetings for next year, settled on three 3-day meetings:
       - Tokyo (Japan) in early March
       - Sophia-Antipolis (France) in late June
       - TPAC in the US in the fall

   * Discussed lack of web designers on CSSWG and what to do about it.
       - Neither Molly nor Jason (AOL) could make it to this F2F,
         and AOL is withdrawing from W3C
       - Want to keep Jason as Invited Expert, but this is generally
         inconsistent with W3C policy
       -  consider other people as well

Apple's Proposals

   Apple presented their proposals for Animations and Transitions, made
   remarks on Transforms, gradients. All four major browser vendors are
   interested in these proposals, and it is very likely that the CSSWG
   will accept to work on them. Apple says they are willing to drive the
   specs, but the CSSWG chairs remind them that they need to show up and
   participate in the group.

   Briefly discussed interaction with SVG.

   Regardless any progress on these is on hold until the rechartering
   process is complete.


   Some discussion of GCPM and what parts of it could move forward.
   No resolutions.

Vertical Text / Text Layout module

   RESOLVED: Separate line grid from vertical text features in Text Layout.
   RESOLVED: Alex Mogilevsky, Saloni Mira Rai, and fantasai as editors
   RESOLVED: target FPWD around end of year, CR during charter period
   RATIONALE: Microsoft has an implementation and would like to nail down
              the spec. Can't progress past CR without another implementation.
