November 12, 2012
Minutes (Notes) of the meeting of jQuery
Location: #jquery-meeting on Freenode
Attending: DaveMethvin, gnarf, timmywil, mikesherov
Time: Noon ET

Official Agenda:

jQuery 1.8.3 – Today!

  • Last call for patches, but I’d prefer none more patched


  • Already sizzle issue, ticket closed


  • Should we allow leading whitespace in $(”   <tag ..>”) detection?
  • I’m leaning NO
  • If it’s not a literal string, user should sanitize–or better, use $.parseHTML

Create $.select()? Could we just document the Sizzle entry point?

Mergatron status?

Speed tests

Dave will ping recent new contribs and see if they want to grab unassigned tix

Unassigned tickets

Assigned tickets review for 1.9; need volunteers for open tix
