Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-2866) 20.128draw:gradient-step-count - mandatory and optional language incorrect - seedescription

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-2866?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=19574#action_19574 ] 

Dennis Hamilton commented on OFFICE-2866:

Word-smithing a little:

"A step count shall not be less than 3."  (or, "A step count shall be greater than 2.")

"Step counts greater than 256 need not be supported.  Treatment of step counts greater than 256 is implementation-dependent."

[I wonder if the boundary is actually 255?]

(The "may be above 256" is tautologous, since it shall be greater than 3 and that includes 256 and greater.)

I would ditch the note.  We have no idea at what level performance degrades, nor do we know what is required to achieve the desired quality of the result.

>             Project: OASIS Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) TC
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: ODF 1.2 Part 1 CD 5
>            Reporter: Patrick Durusau
>             Fix For: ODF 1.2 Part 1 CD 5
> Second paragraph reads:
> "A step count less than 3 is not valid as there would be no interpolation possible. Values above 256 need not be supported or may result in performance issues."
> The phrase "not valid" is clearly wrong, should be a "shall." Is the second sentence for consumers or producers, or both? 
> Suggest: 
> "A step count shall be 3 or greater."
> "A step count may be above 256."
> Note: A step count about 256 is not commonly supported and may lead to performance issues.
