Hi, I am looking to add Postscript Radial and Axial shading patterns to FOP. The class to change to allow this is PSGraphics2D and PSTilingPattern which exists in the XGC project. This wouldn't be a problem except that to modify the code to handle these new patterns I would need to create a reference to Batik from XGC. This is because Radial and Axial calls are made using Batik classes such as RadialGradientPaint.
Having looked at the XGC code it seems that both classes to be modified are not needed specifically in XGC and therefore to avoid having to create a reference to Batik, I am planning on moving them to FOP. If you have any concerns with this move, please feel free to let me know. If I don't hear anything back on this then I'll assume lazy consensus and go ahead with the move. I'll post a patch a week before I apply it. Regards, Robert Meyer
