Is it possible to resync with the upstream YUI Compressor?

Dec 31, 2009 at 4:02 PM

Is there an official policy for how often is the port resync'd with the Java YUI Compressor?

Do you wait for 2.4.3, or do you track individual bugfixes as they're committed in the Java version?

Just wondering (there are some good fixes in HEAD, but a 2.4.3 release hasn't been made yet).

Hi Orip, thanks for checking out this project / port :)

Historically, I've just done a code compare when Yahoo release an official release. I compare each file for the current vs the previous release, see what they've done and manually do the patch. If i think some code could be done better / differently (ie. linq'd, etc), I still do NOT change anything .. trying to keep it true to the original.

Now, if there are code updates that have been checked in, in the most recent java YUI Compressor branch, I do not waste my time checking up on these, etc. I've got so much going on in my life, that I've just waited for the official releases, etc.
