Thanks for putting this together Boyan. To answer your questions -  
yes, JIRAs need to be filed for the move from scratchpad to incubator  
as well as for the build server work.

Here are a few things to think about that came out of the code tour  
you gave yesterday - nothing major.  I'll likely send some more along  

line 89
Using 'find' to get the delete button out of the DOM implies an API  
restriction on the selector a user gives for 'deleteButton'. The  
selector will need to work relative to the containing item. If this is  
something that we really want to do, then we should document the API  
clearly however, we should consider whether we want to put this  
constraint on users of the component. One example of how someone may  
change their use of the component where this implementation would not  
work is if they moved the delete link out of the item and instead had  
a single delete button. If this were a core Infusion component then I  
would say we must change it, however, with decapod components we have  
a little more space to limit flexibility in the use of the components.

line 171
Putting the markup for the delete button in the javascript file  
constrains users to this particular markup. It also negates the  
configurability of the selector for the delete button since it is in  
essence hard coded in this markup snippet. An alternative is to  
include the markup for the delete button hidden in the template and  
use show and hide as required. This will also get rid of the need to  
recreate the delete button every time an item gets focus.

line 243
The URL on this line should be parameterized so that it's easy to  

line 308
I'm curious about the 'flc-imageReorderer' selectors inside capture.  
It feels to me that these are part of the capture component not the  
image reorderer. The image reorderer should define its own selectors  
in its component code. Perhaps I'm misunderstanding this.

I hope this is helpful and I'd like to hear your thoughts.
