Important news regarding future YUI development

Unfortunately it seems Yahoo is taking a different direction and all development work
on YUI has stopped effective immediately. They state that only target fixes will be
made which I assume just means security fixes if that.

This obviously has some impact on our future plans to continue using YUI with Bugzilla
and our work on migrating to version 3. I suppose we should discuss on what we should
do going forward with those plans.

Since we are not too far along yet, we could redirect our efforts to something else
that is robust and well maintained such as jQuery or others. Or take a different
approach and use several different more focused JS libraries depending on what the
needs of the function of Bugzilla.
