Yeah, I noticed too. I think they made up a large portion of activity on the Sodipodi project and Sodipodi will really suffer as a result.

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.

They have some very compatible goals with Gnome Office, such as HIG support. Gnome Office is always going to be a set of *willing* applications so it is implicit that they must advocate membership.

That does not prevent us from linking to any non-member project as an alternative application for Gnome.

At some point we hope to have full SVG support within AbiWord and Gnumeric.

For some reason I recall, from the AbiWord mailing lists, complaints about aspects of librsvg. Perhaps Inkscape could provide an alternative form/method? I don't know, consider that meaningless speculation.

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.

Is Gnome-Print part of Gnome?  Is it related to Gimp-Print?
