Time: Noon ET

Official Agenda:

rwaldron has commit privs on github.com/jquery

  • Congrats!
  • Hide yo kids
  • Hide yo wife



gnarf’s opus on animations

Refactor to allow leaving animation/ajax/(others?) out

  • Yehuda eliminated an ajax dependency in unit tests
  • More work to do there

Land the grunt pull?

  • mikesherov and DaveMethvin to figure out Windows issues

Chad Killingsworth’s CCAO changes


needs TLC on its build stuff for grunt

Proposed plan of action:

  • Leave on a branch for 1.8
  • Get unit tests and basic examples working
  • Call for community input and help
  • Further 1.9 integration contingent on that

What else needs to land?

  • timmywil to get Sizzle changes


  • Can we just always ignore state of iframes?
  • can’t use window.load since it fires once
  • perhaps flip the default state to allow for faster loading?
