jQuery Core Team Meeting – Nov 26 2012

November 26, 2012
Minutes (Notes) of the meeting of jQuery
Location: #jquery-meeting on Freenode
Attending: DaveMethvin, gibson042, timmywil, mikesherov
Time: Noon ET

Official Agenda:

Mergatron status?  Currently in beta test, came up Saturday

  • Issues?
  • Summon with @jquerybot retest ?
  • Whitelist of allowed summoners?

Dave pinged 15 recent new contribs to suck them back in; no bites yet

Availability over the next month?

  • Dave out (teaching a class) December 2,3,4 in NYC but otherwise full speed
  • others?

Early beta of 1.9 on December 9? Need the following by then:

  • All major feature removals and behavior changes landed
  • jquery-compat plugin supporting removed features and behaviors
  • Upgrade guide describing major changes (Dave)

Split for 2.0 (meaning 1.9-stable branch and 2.0 is master) on Dec 16? Later?

  • Earlier split means we can start 2.0 sooner
  • Also means we’ll need to cherry-pick and potentialy nasty merges though
  • Wait until post-split to land oldIE bug fix tickets
  • We should aim to keep unit tests basically unchanged (leave oldIE tests)

Documentation – Upgrade guide

Pull requests

Unassigned tickets

Assigned tickets review for 1.9; need volunteers for open tix
