<scribe> scribenick: shepazu


ed_work: I will send out an agenda for the telcon next thursday

<anthony> http://www.w3.org/TR/SVGTiny12/coords.html#TransformList

<anthony> http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-2d-transforms/

shepazu: it would be good to have specific issues to discuss, rather than broader topics

<ed> http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/WG/wiki/Agenda#For_the_FX_TF

ed: other things to discuss?

shepazu: administrivia?
... XSL-FO is interested in many of the same topics that will be covered in FX... gradients, transforms, text wrapping
... small group, might not have much bandwidth
... but we should coordinate with them

ChrisL: both SVG and XSL use XML syntaxes, which should help there

shepazu: I've request a tracker instance for #fx, and a telcon slot, x3983 (FXTF)
... need to clarify in each instance which of Doug, Chris, or Eric will communicate with the CSS WG

SVG IG Japan

shepazu: SVG IG Japan is interested in moving to the next stage with their SVG Tiling and Layering Map spec

ChrisL: an IG can't do Rec-track work, which means this would have to be a member submission
... which has IPR considerations

shepazu: one possible problem is that KDDI is no longer a W3C Member
... but the spec looks interesting to me

<ChrisL> and the non-Member authors would need to fill in RF IPR commitments


<ChrisL> http://www.dryade.net/navimap_gb/svg.htm


ChrisL: there is some important functionality this would provide, like Level of Detail
... and Load on Demand

<ChrisL> LoD can mean both Level of Detail and Load on Demand. The latter is the way to get the former

ChrisL: I think there is general interest, and others might join in the work

shepazu: which would likely mean changes to the spec
... needs more review
... is this something browser vendors would be interested in implementing?

ed: I think at least some of it would be interesting to Opera, would have to see more details

<ed> there might be some partial overlap with css media queries, which can also be used for some cases of LOD, e.g http://people.opera.com/andreasb/demos/demos_svgopen2009/svgscalelogo.html


Chris: charter ending in April
... need to get an extension

shepazu: I've got a draft charter, still needs work

ChrisL: maybe Mapping could be added to the new charter

draft charter -> http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/WG/charter/SVG-WG-charter.html


ed: what's the status with MS as host?

shepazu: I think the ball is in our court

<ed> May 24 - 26 and May 31 - June 1 (hosted by Microsoft), with May 31 as an open F2F meeting with Libre Graphics community

ed: have we confirmed with LGM

ChrisL: I think so

shepazu: I will reconfirm

trackbot, end telcon
