Happy Holidays everyone! I had lunch with one of the Fontforge
developers the other day, Skef Iterum. He's been working on
improvements to their glyph outline stroking support, including some
algorithmic work that he thinks would be relevant to Inkscape as well.
Once Inkscape 1.0 is done and the codebase is open for feature work, he
may be interested in seeing if the same algorithmic work could be
applied to Inkscape's codebase. He's not conversant in Inkscape's
C++ coding conventions (fontforge is C) but has been going through 2geom
and livarot and sees some areas for improvement.
Marc, I suggested you'd be a great guy for Skef to bounce ideas and
plans around with, and offered to introduce you to him. Would you be
around to chat with him on IRC some time?
