Input status: August 4th, 2014


This is the status report for development on Input. I publish a status report to the input-dev mailing list every couple of weeks or so covering what was accomplished and by whom and also what I'm focusing on over the next couple of weeks. I sometimes ruminate on some of my concerns. I think one time I told a joke.

Current head: 28cd90f

Over the next two weeks

  1. Keep an eye out for any Loop or Heartbeat related work--that's top priority.
  2. Work on gradient support and product picker support

What I need help with

  1. (Google chrome, JavaScript, CSS, HTML) Investigate what's wrong with the date picker in Chrome and fix it [[bug 1012965]]
  2. Test out the Getting Started instructions. We've had a few people go through these already, but it's definitely worth having more eyes.

If you're interested in helping, let me know! We hang out on #input on and there's the input-dev mailing list.

That's it!
