As discussed in dev chat earlier today, Underscore.js and Backbone.js are tools that will help us improve the quality of our Javascript. Their consistent APIs, verbose documentation, and wide usage make them a particularly good fit for WordPress core and our community.

  • Component changed from General to External Libraries

The first place where Backbone will be put to use will be in the improved media workflow, which will have a lot of different states that need to be managed in JS.

Now that the minified versions are in core, does this mean we need to add the unminified versions of both scripts to the Sources Repository (linked from http://wordpress.org/download/source/) ?
