Community & Business Groups

SVG Community Group

The mission of this group is to gather and incubate new features and requirements for SVG — making it easier for software developers and content creators in the SVG community to engage with the SVG standardization process.

This group will complement the SVG working group, and covers the same scope of technologies. Draft proposals for new SVG features, developed in the community group, may transition to recommendation-track specifications in the working group.

This group may publish specifications.

See the SVG CG charter for more information.

Please post feedback as GitHub issues (using the tag [svgcg-2019] in the issue title), so we can have all the comments in one place. If you’re not yet on GitHub, this would be a good time to set up an account — we’re planning to use it for all community group work
