does libsvg have an active maintainer?

I sumbitted a patch a week ago to who seemed to be the owners of this, 
but got no response.

The message follows.

If there is a better way of getting these taken care of, please advise.



I hope this is the proper approach to filing a bug report, if not, 
please direct me to the proper place.

I'm using libsvg-0.1.4 with libsvg-cairo-0.1.6

I created an SVG using inkscape.

The relevent part of this given below:

    d="m 15,36.233643 18.047549,-20 26.952451,10 7.202838,30 
-2.202838,30 -37.675769,-10 z"
    inkscape:connector-curvature="0" />

this figure was not rendering properly with libsvg, but was in inkscape 
plus chrome web browser.

After running with cairo trace, discovered that the net sum of what this 
did was a number of move commands, followed by a close path.

I believe that the problem is failure to observe the following from 

8.3.2 moveto

"... If a moveto is followed by multiple pairs of coordinates, the 
subsequent pairs are treated as implicit lineto commands. Hence, 
implicit lineto commands will be relative if the moveto is relative, and 
absolute if the moveto is absolute. ..."

attached is a patch which applied to libsvg seems to correct this problem.

Thank you for your attention.
