Subject Re: Dojo plugin update using 1.1.0 framework
Date Sun, 06 Apr 2008 00:20:57 GMT
I don't think we should wait at all. Refactoring dojo out of core was
one of the main things for 2.1 and it's been there for a year already.
Unless Dojo 1.0 is a lot, way, way better than the older versions, I
would say you will find lots of surprises. IMO you should set it up as
a project on googlecode or somewhere else and we can all
contribute/test and eventually bring it on (or just keep it there and
get rid of our current plugin).

my 2 centavos :)
