Subject [Bug 120607] Rotated gradient is scaled, but should not
Date Tue, 21 Aug 2012 11:13:53 GMT

--- Comment #3 from Armin Le Grand <> ---
ALG->Regina: I understand what you mean, but that's the way it happened and was
defined originally. This more or less makes the old versions define the ODF
behaviour. Not nice. but fact. 'Wrong' behaviour in SO5.2 -> no, it's the root
of ODF definitions.
As I said, for ODF1.3 changes may be made, but there must be a transition path.
It is not acceptable to change the ODF definitions and then let all old ODFs
look different after loading. I *have* seen examples where people used
gradients, their step width and other stuff to create someting like lines wvere
other objects are placed (!).
Whoever wrote in ODF1.2 that e.g. angles are degrees (and even the same as in
SVG) may have done so in good purpose, but had (obviously) nit the manpower to
do these changes in all existing ODF munchers. Let's not do something similar -
just changing the def to what we *want* it to be is not a good choice
