Topic: test-fest
10:37:47 [ChrisL]
10:38:16 [ChrisL]
ED: Andrew confirmed they can host, asks for resolution to agree to the location
10:38:27 [ChrisL]
(no objections)
10:39:17 [ChrisL]
Resolved: Test Fest will be held in Ottawa, 29 Sept - 2 Oct
10:39:52 [ChrisL]
Topic: SVG in HTML
10:39:52 [ChrisL]
10:39:52 [ChrisL] (various feedback)
10:40:21 [ChrisL]
ED: The location of the test fest shuld be announced btw. AE is on vacation
10:40:26 [ChrisL]
DS; I can announce it
10:40:37 [ChrisL]
10:40:54 [ChrisL]
ED: Lets ask for a front page news item
10:41:19 [ChrisL]
ACTION: Doug talk to Ian Jacobs about wide announcement of test fest including front page news item
10:41:19 [trackbot]
Created ACTION-2114 - Talk to Ian Jacobs about wide announcement of test fest including front page news item [on Doug Schepers - due 2008-07-31].
10:42:00 [ChrisL]
ED: OK back to SVG in HTML. Ian responded to our proposal. Made upa broken example and says it works fdifferently in our proposal
10:42:50 [ChrisL]
CL: his ecxample is contrived, while his proposal invalidated large amnounts of existing valid content produced by common authoring tools
10:43:51 [ChrisL]
ED; In the above mail I gave 2 examples, replace p with a or add a metadata then what do you expect?
10:44:20 [ChrisL]
... confident there is little content actually existing which are broken in that particular way
10:44:52 [ChrisL]
DS: He has searched for that one example, clearly. He claims it will become a more common error once people copy it
10:47:02 [ChrisL]
CL: Its important to preserve the large amount of existing content 9eg, stuff with metadata) which works. Occasional screwcases that dont work anyway in existing browsers are much less important and there are a lot less of them
10:47:52 [ChrisL]
ED: I will convey this to the HTML WG
10:52:30 [ChrisL]
DS; What we really want is SVG in all the major browsers, including IE
10:53:24 [ChrisL]
ED: OpenAjax Alliance poll put SVG in top position of desirable features
10:54:17 [ChrisL]
CL: Its interesting that it scored so highly, above specifically ajax-related things
10:54:50 [ChrisL]
ED: Chris Wilson posted with questions on how the dom works, thought the proposal was clear, we could explain more that its the same document and the same dom
10:55:43 [ChrisL]
CL: Either clarify if its unclear, or point to the current wording in a clarificatory followup
10:56:12 [ChrisL]
CMcC; They are comparing it to xml islands, so thats how I responded
10:56:28 [ChrisL]
DS: Single tree, dom gets the methods from both html and svg
10:57:20 [ChrisL]
ACTION: Erik respond to the messages on SVG in HTML, making it cleaer that its the same DOM - if needed update the proposal too
10:57:21 [trackbot]
Created ACTION-2115 - Respond to the messages on SVG in HTML, making it cleaer that its the same DOM - if needed update the proposal too [on Erik Dahlström - due 2008-07-31].
11:09:07 [ChrisL]
Topic: CSS 3 Color
11:09:07 [ChrisL]
11:13:36 [ChrisL]
CL: They removed flavor which is good, and color management via CSS which is unfortunate but since its untestable this is understandable
11:14:01 [ChrisL]
ACTION: Chris review css 3 color and report back to SVG WG
11:14:01 [trackbot]
Created ACTION-2116 - Review css 3 color and report back to SVG WG [on Chris Lilley - due 2008-07-31].
11:15:14 [ChrisL]
ED: Firefox support the HSL colours, we could adopt it later
11:16:25 [ed_]
s/Firefox support the HSL colours,/Firefox support the HSL colours syntax in svg too,/
11:17:54 [ChrisL]
CL: If they do RGBA, we really need to test that in combination with opacity
11:18:13 [ChrisL]
Topic: Test coverage / action status update
11:18:13 [ChrisL]
11:18:13 [ChrisL]
11:18:42 [ChrisL]
The other requiredFonts test is in progress but not yet ready for review
11:18:56 [ChrisL]
DS: Added two extra switch tests
11:19:27 [ChrisL]
ED: I added some tests for script handler and listener, three tests added to table to be reviewed
11:19:35 [ChrisL]
... still some untested assertions
11:20:12 [ChrisL]
.. its a good increase in coverage for the scripting section
11:20:25 [ChrisL]
s/.. its/... its/
11:22:56 [ChrisL]
CL: Doug could you take the class attr test? it just needs some class attr, with and without spaces, then check they are in the dom (test on full string, perhaps on substrings too to allow for collapsing of multiple spaces)
11:24:54 [ChrisL]
CL: Its just testing its in the DOM
11:25:03 [ChrisL]
ED: Reviewers for my three tests?
11:25:26 [ed_]
11:26:09 [ChrisL]
CL; I will add my tests there too
11:27:24 [ChrisL]

11:37:48 [ChrisL]

11:38:07 [ChrisL]
ED: Yes, check they have been added. BitFlash also contributed some
11:39:46 [ChrisL]
Topic: Question about getURL() (SVGT 1.2)
11:39:47 [ChrisL]
11:43:23 [ChrisL]
CL: For XML the implementation should of course be allowed to look at the BOM and xml encoding declaration to see what the encoding is, if the http charset parameter is missing. Should not be forced to treat as us-ascii
11:43:25 [heycam]
CM: is the current wording meant to preclude using getURL() with non-text/* content-types?
11:43:40 [heycam]
CM: or does it just say "if the content-type *is* text/*, then decode it in this way"?
11:43:44 [ed_]
11:43:53 [ChrisL]
ACTION: Chris respond to Julien on re getURL
11:43:53 [trackbot]

CMcC: Check current spec
11:47:18 [ChrisL]
ED: (checks spec on content property for async url)
11:49:36 [ChrisL]
DOMstring is UTF-16 so some bit patterns are not allowed
11:50:54 [ChrisL]
CMcC: But that is not checked by implementations
11:51:03 [ChrisL]
CL: Will send draft here first for checking
11:51:22 [ChrisL]

ED: Do we have tests for this ? Yes it was based on a test case, but float is not tested eg SVGMatix
