Let me remind everybody that 1.1 is officially only 8 days away. The
goal is clearly not achievable in that time :), so a selection has to
be made. I'd say bringing up trivial, non-controversial, fully
documented and tested bugfixes like I and Tai Lee did, helps in that
selection and makes 1.1 a better release. The total ticket mass is
just unmanageable and picking ripe fruits for the devs to review and
commit should assist, not hinder in achieving that goal.
Which brings me to a related matter: as there have been no news about
Honza and his progress on model validation, I'll semi-champion it (at
least until he pops up again OR a core dev steps up to take it upon
him/herself OR someone opposes this). I've created a fork of the
unofficial git mirror for that purpose at http://github.com/mrts/django/tree/master
. Everybody is most welcome to contribute.
By semi-champion I mean that I'll contribute as much as I can beside
daily job tasks by directly writing code, hanging in #django-dev to
discuss things with people interested in helping out and merging
other's patches and upstream changes ASAP. Unfortunately I can not
warrant that this will be completed it in the short time remaining.
Design decisions will eventually appear in the wiki: http://wiki.github.com/mrts/django
As of now, I've only merged the latest patch by Honza, so the branch
should be rather unusable (trunk has changed considerably in some
areas -- neither did the patch apply cleanly nor was it always
applicable where it did).
