Weekly Team Meeting, 2011-04-20


  • Trac protocol, re: #12786
  • 1.7 timeline
  • Docs status
  • open


There was some concern that we should encourage active and energetic newcomers, but concensus on this particular issue: the ticket was closed as a minor issue with no functional impact and no committer sponsor willing to make it happen at this time. Phiggins offered to contact the contributor directly to discuss.

  • The existing arrangement which allows non-committers to re-open closed tickets was thought by the group to be worth keeping, despite occassional incidents like #12786
  • Trac currently contains over 1000 "Future" tickets and around 400 TBD status tickets. Phiggins appealed for help triaging those TBD tickets. He stressed that despite the large number of "Future" tickets they should remain in place for consideration - each was deemed valid and represents potentially good ideas and improvements when someone has the time to get to them
  • 1.6.1 The 1.6 branch is ready for a pre-release of 1.6.1, and Peller indicated it should be available by Monday
  • Uhop reported that the gantt Dojox module is broken in trunk. Peller has asked the comitting dev (Jason) to look into it.
  • Phiggins reported work on the docs parser progress - it doesn't currently parse the AMD formatted modules fully. He is putting unit tests in place to track the existing parser's capabilities and help narrow down on the current issues
  • Phiggins reported that the work to migrate away from and the MoinMoin? wiki to house the content in version control (GitHub?) is nearing completion (Dustin).
  • in 1.7, chrism1 is committing gfx and charting patches - these have been reviewed and approved by uhop
  • Tentative dates for 1.7: feature freeze May 7th, with the remainder of May given to stabilization/hardening and betas & release planned for June
  • Stabilization period in May should include a review of the requires in dijit and to remove unneeded dependencies
  • News expected but not confirmed on some pending Dojox work originally targeted for 1.7. Includes dojox.mvc (),, grid enhancements and alternatives
  • evanhw lead discussion of the gestures API and implementation


  • 1.6.1 on Monday 2nd May
  • May 9 beta freeze for 1.7. 4 weeks for beta.
