12:30pm Pacific time, shaver will provide the call in info.

Let me know if tomorrow does not work.

A lot is going on now, and more has gone on in the background, on the 
trunk and on, as well as in the aviary branch, which is 
landing.  I'd like to ratify the plans we've developed and push on a few 

1.  Cairo back end status reports for Mac (Core Graphics, a.k.a. 
Quartz), Windows (GDI+), and Linux.  We won't replace gfx with Cairo by 
1.8final, but we should aim to do so by 1.9.  Roc can say more.
2.  Canvas tag status.
3.  SVG status and plans for 1.8 and 1.9
4.  E4X update.
5.  Storage news.
6.  Storage-inspired thoughts on remote hosting of data people want to
6a.  share among machines,
6b.  share with others.
Everything from bookmarks to the Junk mail corpus comes to mind; 
coherent read/write protocol issues come up, but that's part of the fun.
7.  Native widget rendering goals, leading to a task list for 1.8 and 1.9.
8.  XUL template and other stuff.
9.  XTF and XBL, what's the latest thinking on sharing correct 
insertion-point implementation?
10.  XForms, web forms, better widgets such as sliders -- I'm mixing 
these up on purpose, because I'm still looking for synergy between the 
XForms optional extension and improvements to HTML and XUL widgets based 
on and our own specs/intentions.

More topics welcome,
