that's a shame :(

unfortunately this isn't accurate.  while there isn't work ready to 
commit, significant effort has been put into the yui3 migration, and 
there's already a lot of work against that branch.

that said, i think it would be wise to shelf that work, and instead move to jquery.

before we start throwing frameworks at the list and hope one of them stick, i think it would be prudent to first document our requirements.  thankfully we make very sparten use of yui, and the gsoc yui3 project work can be used roadmap towards js/template that will need to be touched once a framework and plugins are chosen.

here's my start:

- jquery based
- compatible license (foss)
- cross-browser support
- wai/aria support
- localisation support

- data tables/grids with ajax support
- auto-completion with ajax support
- calendar
