Minutes

  • priority of async IDB on workers vs. sync IDB on workers
    • sync will require lots of Ben's time for review
    • event and eventdispatcher unified implementation from smaug just landed
    • Jan thinks he can have a patch ready for Ben's review by mid-October
    • if he drops the current work, it'll be more work in the future due to rebases, etc.
    • priority-wise, async IDB on workers is higher priority for desktop
    • on B2G, sync IDB on workers can unblock gaia
    • sicking thinks we need more agreement at spec level for sync before shipping it on desktop; but could turn on on nightly and aurora (not beta/release) to get feedback from authors
  • Jan says we'll have IDB ported to WebIDL in ~1 week
  • IPC thread for workers and child processes will also be done very soon
  • API availability on a platform vs. security restrictions around that API
  • Jan will work with Google and others on temporary storage syntax
    • Google suggested 3 approaches and we're doing one of them; just need to get agreement
  • Unimplemented Web APIs are stubbed out inappropriately
  • Summit demos
    • we decided we'd do a 30 minute open session of WebAPI Q&A instead ... no one will be in Santa Clara to do it but that's okay
