Discussion Topics

Friday will be 22nd April not 23rd :slight_smile:

in my opinion it would be good to reduce the amount of issues and pullrequestion on canjs. 244 issues and 41 open PR are to many.
we have to close old issues that are not resolved yet. maybe there is a workaround for some.
open PR should be merged or closed as well.

@pYr0x I used to feel the same way, but now I don’t think we should close all issues just because they are old. A bug’s a bug, regardless of how old it is.

We should more regularly triag issues though, I agree there. I’m sure that there are a lot of open issues/PRs that are no longer relevant and can be closed.

This Week


Investigating how we can compose plugins together so that we can do things like

donejs add mocha
donejs add commonjs

and have our generators use commonjs and mocha. I’m looking into how plugins can hook into our generators so that our base generator can write out es6 and qunit and then the mocha plugin could update the qunit code to mocha, the commonjs plugin could update the es6 modules to comomonjs, etc.

Conversation on this can be found here:
