I understand full well how hard it is to pull things together sometimes. 
  I just wanted to make sure that SVG didn't slip by the wayside in the 
wake of the big job you folks have.

I don't believe we have anyone active at this time (though we have in 
the past).

In the SVG telcon, we decided it would be ideal if we could have one or 
more people from each group (the ODF TC and SVG WG) participating in an 
as-needed basis to discuss the details of SVG in ODF (and how SVG might 
be expanded to meet any additional needs of ODF).  That way, we could 
establish a more fruitful long-term relationship between the 
technologies, by understanding the ways and means, goals, and culture of 
the other group.

I'll contact you off-list about some of these options.
