Next Week:

  • 3.0 Training material


  • Rename can-operate to can-reflect

Should a plaintext version of jQuery be appended as part of FuncUnit.

Makes FuncUnit more portable
Potentially easier to use
End-users don’t need to keep track of which version of FuncUnit works with which jQuery

Bloats the code
Deceptive, and counters the doc
Questionable as to which version of jQuery is being used, if users specify a different version.

Discussed topics:

Delaying the Templating RFP:

  • Summary: team is still working on DoneJS 1.0, so we’re removing the due date for RFP submissions until we have a better idea when we’ll discuss this topic
  • The goal of the RFP is to collect ideas to foster our discussion, so although we almost certainly won’t pick one RFP and go with it, it’s important for us to collect the community’s thoughts
  • …so please submit your ideas, even if they’re not fully-formed!

Contribution guide template:

Remove plug for Apple:

  • Some non-Apple fans might not like our comparison to them
  • Decision: replace the “plug” with a better metaphor

Rename can-operate to can-reflect:

  • can-operate
  • Reflect API seems similar to can-operate’s purpose
  • Justin will continue evaluating whether they’re similar

Should a plaintext version of jQuery be appended as part of FuncUnit?

  • Discussion deferred to next week’s meeting
