Location: #jquery-meeting on Freenode
Attending: DaveMethvin, timmywil, rwaldron, gibson042, mikesherov
Time: Noon ET

Official Agenda:

jQuery 1.8.2

Would like this to be the last in the 1.8 line

Let’s stay conservative

  • No regressions
  • Only low-risk, high-impact bugs


  • The Big Sizzle
  • Others??

Ship date: Thu Sept 20?

Bug triage meeting last Thursday

  • Triaged all new bugs
  • Triaged 1.8.2 bugs

Assigned tickets

Let’s only grab tix when they can be worked on soon

  • Weekly status on assigned tickets
  • Owned tix discourage others from looking/fixing
  • Can we get some of these done during the hackfest?

Currently assigned

1.9/2.0 split

  • land any post-1.8.2 fixes common to both
  • Do the split after that, post-hackathon

1.9 direction on oldIE

  • Fix anything that’s practical (a dozen or so lines of code max?)
  • Wontfix the rest; explain why (perf, size, side-effects) and give workarounds

1.9 voting

  • Let’s start voting next week (after 1.8.2 ships)
  • Identify tickets that you think should be discussed/voted
  • Don’t tag uncontroversial tickets that should just be done
