Re: Build a Media Fragment URI Parser In JavaScript (ACTION-203)

To: Media Fragment <public-media-fragment@w3.org>
Quick update: added unit tests to the project, and in consequence
fixed a couple of small bugs. Now the behavior of the library should
mirror the spec completely (e.g., hh:mm:ss in NPT gets always
converted to the corresponding ss). The library is designed to ignore
illegal parameters silently, and to report a warning on the console if
a valid parameters has illegal values (e.g., start > end, or xywh
percentages > 100). The warnings can be turned off via a VERBOSE flag.
Thanks all for positive feedback and tweets. Encouraging ;-)
