    ED: we said previously that we'd have a WG meeting at the last day

    ED: i'm assuming advanced gradients would be one of the topics

TPAC 2011


      [14] http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/WG/wiki/F2F/TPAC_2011

    ED: propose topics on the wiki, and the chairs will assemble a full
    agenda based on that

SVG2 repository setup


      [17] http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/WG/wiki/Svgwg.org

    ED: so, following the instructions on that page carefully you should
    be able to get a checkout of the svg2 repository
    ... it's setup to automatically push to the w3c repository, but has
    some hooks to automatically build the publish version of the spec
    and so on
    ... jwatt should send an email explaining this in more detail later,
    but it's already possible to start working on the spec I think
    ... summary: don't use the dvcs.w3.org repos directly, always go via
    the svgwg.org repos
    ... spec is just 1.1 Second Edition with pink background color to
    indicate that it's not yet been changed, when changing things we
    should mark the sections with another color to indicate it's ready
    for review

    CC: what happens if multiple ppl push at the same time?

    ED: i'd assume it's queued (or rejected)

    CL: building, does that require tools clientside?

    ED: it's running buildscripts on the svgwg.org server, nothing
    required by clients apart from the mercurial client

SVG2 Planning

    ED: updates?
    ... people still welcome to add comments to the requirements page
    ... i've not had time to start on the UC&R page yet, but will try to

    CC: maybe we could use one of the meeting days at SVG Open or TPAC
    to discuss this

    ED: sure

Publishing SVG Integration

    ED: status?

    <cyril> can we get a link to that spec ?

    DS: no change, we have resolved to publish as FPWD
    ... there has been comments on that
    ... either process comments first, or publish it as-is and say that
    we have comments

    <cyril> Is it
    [18]http://dev.w3.org/SVG/modules/integration/SVGIntegration.html ?

      [18] http://dev.w3.org/SVG/modules/integration/SVGIntegration.html

    CL: think the second option would be better

    DS: I could list the comments, and indicate things we want to add,
    or just publish it as is
    ... just to get it out for wider review
    ... not too much work

    CL: would like to see it out before TPAC

    DS: makes sense
    ... we'll get comments again on the number of modes we have in the
    ... maybe clarify what the modes are meant to be used for
    ... points of reference for other specifications
    ... it was discussed at the auckland f2f
    ... i'll include links to known comments

    RESOLUTION: publish the SVG Integration spec as FPWD with a list of
    known comments

    trackbot, end telcon
