I also don't really like this scenario. I know there are plenty of
commits that go in without a test in IE. However, I think the pressure
we put on ourselves to test in IE ultimately benefits us. It's a
serious pain to go back and make a workaround for IE - and nobody likes
to do it for another's changes. I think if we want the project to work
in IE, then testing modifications in IE is ultimately the responsibility
of the committer.
All that said, I'm much happier when I get away with making a change
that I haven't had to test in IE - and I entirely understand the other
I know Erik has expressed frustration about this before (commits that
break IE) - which is why I suggested waiting until he could weigh in on
this before we really made any change.
