Core Team Meeting Minutes - 2014/02/21

Although most of our collaboration takes place on Github, IRC (#emberjs on, and our Discourse site the Ember.js Core Team meets privately every Friday at 2pm EST/11am PST through Google Hangout for a weekly discussion of all things Ember.

If you have a topic you'd like to see covered, contact your favorite core team member and let them know!

Old Stack Overflow questions

Last week we started the process of cleaning up old questions on Stack Overflow by collecting a list of questions and evaluating whether the question still made sense and, if so, whether selected answer was still the best available answer.

Initially we were using Stack Overflow's existing tagging functionality to collect this list but the Stack Overflow admins suggested that we find some other way. They didn't have any suggestions for using Stack Overflow to speed this process, so we created a list of all Ember.js questions to date with some minimal semantics around correctness.

If you're looking to help, please check out this document and give us feedback on some older Stack Overflow questions and answers!

This work continues here.

Features pending 'Go' decision.

The core team reviewed the following pull requests for future inclusion in the 1.6.x beta series:

  • ember-testing-simple-setup #3785

    While its heart is in the right place, we think this is a bandaid on top of a testing infrastructure that needs a bottoms-up rethink.

    While we don't think the implementation needs to change dramatically, per se, someone needs to sit down and write a proposal for how the testing infrastructure should work.

    Resolution: Revert.

  • query-params-new #4008

    @stefanpenner and @machty met in person on Tuesday to discuss an API that supported lazy loading of routes and will continue the conversation as these changes are made.

    Resolution: Not ready yet. We don’t want to serialize default values into the URL. False params should be represented as “=false”, rather than merely being absent from URL (which was ambiguous). So, this example JSBin from the docs is wrong:
