Input status: August 4th, 2014

Note: This is an old post in a blog with a lot of posts. The world has changed, technologies have changed, and I've changed. It's likely this is out of date and not representative. Let me know if you think this is something that needs updating.


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!
