Project Leads Meeting – Oct 15 2014


Attending: Dave, Scott, Alex, Kris, Jörn, Rafael

link Core

  • Moved to Github issues
    • Trac is still needed, not working well
    • Migration supposedly being worked on
    • Will migrate open tickets
  • New versioning coming, two packages
    • jQuery-Compat 3.0.0 (like 1.x branch)
    • jQuery 3.0.0 (like 2.x branch)
    • Same API, now follow semver
    • Dropping browser from -compat deserves a version bump?
  • Use fetch() rather than $.xhr()?
    • it's an okay API
    • There is a shim: https://github.com/github/fetch
      • shim only supports IE10+, also not Android 2.3
    • Should we move IE9 and Android 2.x to -compat?
    • not sure how to integrate such a shim though
    • perhaps we could include it in a custom build tool?
