stelt, that sounds great... we need more content on the wiki

shepazu: Firefox widget set
16:49:13 [gwadej]
... works in browsers, not just Firefox
16:49:37 [JeffSchiller]
stelt: I was talking about content for the website that you might be willing to write, I think you mentioned a checklist or something
16:49:44 [gwadej]
... Kevin Lindsey, I wonder if he would do a tutorial?
16:50:24 [gwadej]
... maybe not need to worry about the content. We need to have something to point to from the W3C site.
16:50:50 [stelt]
wants to move his links
16:51:04 [gwadej]
Rob_Russell: Once we're using the new theme as default, then put this on W3C.
16:51:50 [gwadej]
JeffSchiller: let's fix the theme and then, if no show-stoppers let's put it out, (then we can teak forever._
16:52:28 [gwadej]
JeffSchiller: Little space at top was for links, but we don't use it for now.
16:52:50 [gwadej]
JeffSchiller: identify low-handing fruit in browser bugs.

... putting some priority on SVG fonts, not in 3.1 but soon.
16:54:01 [gwadej]
... SMIl is a big one.
16:54:21 [gwadej]
... little stuff, like the title not giving a tooltip.
16:54:39 [gwadej]
... workaround like misuseing XLink title.
16:55:33 [gwadej]
... part of engine core, so it's stuck in review
16:55:51 [gwadej]
rlongson: can't review it, and people who can aren't doing it yet.
16:56:28 [Zakim]
16:57:07 [JeffSchiller]
16:57:28 [stelt]
if we write about low hanging fruit bugs, make sure to add links to bug tracking systems
