Hi Nikolas,
just wanted to know if there is a KSVG mailing list somewhere, or where do you 
discuss issues about its development? (only irc?)

I'm working on a very nice (IMO =) UML tool, called Umbrello, and we are about 
to release version 1.1.  After that is done, we'll probably make some big 
design changes to the program, and I am very interested in switching to SVG 
for the graphics, mainly because it seems that that will be the standard for 
storing diagrams in the new UML specification.

I'd like to take a look at KSVG and if possible build the diagramming part of 
Umbrello around it. I also found a project called K2D which tries to be a 
SVG-editor built on top of KSVG and could be very interesting for us as well. 

Actually what we need is just the SVG viewer (KSVG) with very basic editing 
capabilities, just insert elements and move them around (somthing in the 
direction of K2B, but not as complete)

I got CVS a couple of days ago, and altough I havn't really had time to look 
in detail into the code,  I think it would be much easier if there were some 
design documents (or if the sources had more comments=).  If there is a 
mailing list I'd like to join and start learning about KSVG by watching the 

thank you,


pd- If you want to take a look at our project go to uml.sourceforge.net
