Subject [GitHub] couchdb pull request: Add polyfill for IE8 Array.indexOf
Date Wed, 19 Feb 2014 16:21:09 GMT
Github user ziggythehamster commented on the pull request:
    It's really not a huge deal to change the patch to do ES5-Shim. How would I handle the
licensing bit?

    Let's merge this and not wait for a heavier change for this on-it's-way-out project.
    The licensing for array.indexof.js is public domain:
    > Code samples added on or after August 20, 2010 are in the public domain. No licensing
notice is necessary, but if you need one, you can use: "Any copyright is dedicated to the
Public Domain.".
    On the list several people said "patches welcome." A patch arrives and the conversation
spins off into all the various options for re-implementing this same feature. Apache CouchDB
can't afford to have this keep happening. It's exhausting.
    @rnewson @garrensmith @kxepal please consider merging this sooner than later to keep this
community awesome. :smile:
    Fauxton is still some ways out from feature parity and will have it's own set of issues
with old browsers.
    Just input from a concerned citizen. :innocent:
