I've been lurking of the inkscape mailing list. There is a *lot* of energy
, enthusiasm and new code there. We definitely need excellent vector
graphics within Gnome-Office and these guys could help us a lot. There
appears to be substantial interest in joining Gnome_office but we should
certainly ask them first.

At some point we hope to have full SVG support within AbiWord and Gnumeric.
Dom and Jody have some plans to use librsvg with some Gnumeric technology
to print SVG images. We also want to be able render AbiWord and Gnumeric
documents into SVG. In the past I thought this could be accomplished with
a SVG backend for Gnome-Print.

However I don't know who the current maintainer of Gnome-Print is and what
plans the person has for it.
