The purpose of the event was to investigate a few patches and improved the ruby driver support for Selenium. Chris and I tried to integrate and test the Frame Support patch from James Wang, but ran into a lot of trouble. The patch is fairly large and we were both completely unfamiliar with Selenium's internals. I need to post our results to the Selenium Dev List and try to contact James as well, to get a better feel for what was done and what i need to do to understand it.
Update: James contacted me and gave me some more info on the patch. Hopefully this will help me integrate and test it better!
I have a vested interest in having frame support, since the main application i want to test sadly uses iframes to poorly mimic Excel's "Freeze Panes" feature.
The event itself was a lot of fun, even though i didn't technically accomplish anything. Also, this was probably my final user group event of the year.
