Mathml August Meeting

This is a report about the Mozilla MathML August IRC Meeting (see the announcement here). The topics of the meeting can be found in this PAD (local copy of the PAD) and the IRC log (local copy of the IRC log) is also available.

In the last 4 weeks the MathML team closed 5 bugs, worked in other 6 and open one bug. This are only the ones tracked by Bugzilla.

The next meeting will be in September 11th at 8pm UTC. Please add topics in the PAD.



This is the first time that we try use WebRTC solutions for the meeting. The advantage of use WebRTC is that it can make us spend less time with the meeting (we are currently using two hours for the meeting at IRC) but the side effect is that some people couldn’t participate at it because still at work or their main device doesn’t have video/audio support.

We are going to continuing try using it a few more times and request that people use headphones.


Moritz gave an update of the state of MathML at MediaWiki. Moritz’s work was deployed at beta-labs and some examples are available here and here.`


Deyan gave an update of the state of LaTeXML. Bruce is working to fix small issues and Deyan in rewrite part of the code into C to improve performance.

Furthermore, Frédéric is trying to use LaTeXML to build some Web Apps for Firefox OS and report some bugs when trying it.

Slow render of MathML

Bruce reported that Gecko is slow when rendering MathML. Most of MathML contributors had worked trying to solve this bug.

I want to set a server to benchmark some pages and avoid this happens in the future. Karl suggest that I use Talos.
