SVG2 Planning Page
This page captures requirements input for the SVG 2.0 effort and ownership for the different effort. The intent of the Working Group is to use this document to list and prioritize requirements for the new SVG 2.0 features and identify owners for the different activities.
This page also tracks the milestones for the SVG 2.0 effort.

Roles and Owners
|Chair(s)||Cameron & Erik|
The following table contains the list of features that are under consideration for SVG 2.0 and the owners. The owners commit to follow the feature through to final recommendation and support the test effort by contributing tests in addition to authoring the feature's specification text. The reviewers will be the group's main reviewer for changes and progress on the feature.
NOTE: This list is not final. It is pending the finalization of the SVG 2.0 requirements.

SVG Tiny 1.2 Features Carry-Overs
This section will contain the list of SVG Tiny 1.2 Features that need to be carried over SVG 2.0. See ACTION-3100.
- Turtle graphics (Cameron)
- Shared/Reverse paths presentation, SVG 1.2 Draft of vePath, Shared/Reverse paths motivation (JCMoissinac)
See SVG2 Spec structure for how the specification will be organized and how sections relate to SVG 1.1 and other specifications.
Test Suite Requirements
This was discussed during the June 23rd 2011 SVG teleconference: http://www.w3.org/2011/06/23-svg-irc
Here are the agreements we had:
- We should use the same harness generating and reporting framework as the CSS Working Group, the framework that Peter Linss has put in place for CSS 2.1 and has now been adopted by W3C. We should adopt the method to have the spec. annotated with the tests that pass or fail.
- We should start adding tests along with reference SVG files for the expected result (i.e., not just reference images)
- Try to group related atomic tests into a single test to reduce the management overhead (allows code sharing for tests, for example)
- We should try to have tests reference specific testable assertion as Chris did with WOFF and Doug is doing with DOM Level 3 Events.
- Tests must be added to the Mercurial repository at http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/svg2-tests/ and they,plus the auto-generated harness, will be published on http://w3c-test.org/framework/
