Discussions

  • doc tech reviews still needed
  • people are invited to docs sprint at end of July
  • API (un)prefixing policies (Tantek bringing this up, but everyone feel free to add thoughts/URLs to this)
    • what are we doing with new(ish) APIs that we ship (no prefixes right?)
      • right, no prefixes
    • what are we doing with legacy APIs that are prefixed (any left? which? bug#s?)
      • e.g. https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/window.requestAnimationFrame
        • requestAnimationFrame has been unprefixed.
          • so it looks like we have a docs update bug then, as the syntax examples show prefixed-only call for Firefox
      • e.g. https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/window.mozAnimationStartTime
      • when do we unprefix them?
        • as soon as we have an unprefixed version and the web doesn't depend on the prefixed version too much (to be evaluated on a per case basis)
          • "as soon as we have an unprefixed version" sounds like a tautology - do you mean as soon as we have a spec defined for an unprefixed version?
            • Yes, having a spec is part of the process of unprefixing an API. Making sure that our implementation adheres to it is another.
          • why does "the web doesn't depend on the prefixed version too much" matter for this? wouldn't we just support both for a while? (next question handles dropping prefixes)
          • Sure, I thought you're asking about unprefixing in general.
      • when do we drop support for the prefixed versions? case-by-case? general timeout?
        • case by case, mostly
    • Great. I'd like to draft some of our WebAPI (un)prefixing policies on wikimo - I think I have enough from this Etherpad to start a stub but wanted to check with folks here to see if there were differing opinions before I did so. - Tantek
