Closed, ResolvedPublic3 Estimated Story Points

Let's estimate this today. @Samwilson @Mooeypoo Anything to add to this ticket?

This will also include setting up Docker to use the Wikimedia fork of RSVG won't it? But apart from that, I don't suppose svgtranslate's use of rsvg will require anything specific (i.e. if people are developing locally and not with Docker, they can use whatever rsvg their package manager gives them).

Also: do we set a max-size for the rendering?

Is this the RSVG we are talking about?

Samwilson moved this task from In Development to QA on the Community-Tech-Sprint board.

The staging site is now updated with this patch, and PNGs are rendering. Ready for QA.

Please try with small aspect ratios, and large images. I think there's some weird things; might just be me though. :)

Works for me. Sometimes images load slowly or don't load at all. I've filed T213140: [BUG] SVG Translate fails to render some images to look at the latter.
