Would anyone be interested in following up on the problems between the
OpenDocument format and SVG?
Mental, you seemed most versed in discussing these issues previously. I
fear we are too late! OOo is geared up with OpenDocument support and I
noticed that Krita and other KOffice apps already support the format.
Man, why couldn't OpenDocument just use SVG man...ugh!
Inkscape will need to support import/export of OpenDocument in the near
I have added two bugs for this for export and import:
How do you all feel about? What are your thoughts? If you are interested
in seeing a quick overview of: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenDocument
Scribus already supports this format as well.
Daniel, could you inform both lists about the state of your discussion
with OASIS about this?
