Official Agenda:


New issues?

Bad TinyMCE .attr() duck punch seems to be resolved by their beta

Bug tracker misbehavin’ again last week

  • Who knows why, but a reboot fixed it…

Style guide: Did we remove the ambiguous “space around quotes” rule?

  • Dave to create epic email thread regarding this

http://bugs.jquery.com/ticket/11539 Do we want to change our support for text nodes?

  • gibson042: traversing is safe for text nodes, manipulation is not?


1.8 (April 9 Beta)

Dev on master or branch? Consensus: 1.8 on Development Branch

1.8 Feature branch — we’ll land PRs there?

Specific process?

  • Make standard PRs but against 1.8 branch (after I create it)
  • https://github.com/jquery/jquery/branches
  • Um, create 1.8 branch (BRANCH is 1.8pre b/c there was 1.8 subs?)
  • WHY CAN’T I label PRs? (gnarf: maybe bc issues are off?)

Several PRs ready to land

jaubourg has been a good boy

Pinged Chad Killingsworth re Closure Compiler, he made a Sizzle PR for some issues to simplify CC work (haven’t reviewed it yet)
