Here's topics we discussed today, all about Blender 2.5x progress.
Nathan Letwory reports that since 2.54 100 new bug reports came in, but 144 were closed! The total is down to 339 now.
- Another Windows user complained about losing .blend files when doing an uninstall. After discussion, two solutions have been mentioned. One is to ensure the default path on opening file window is set to 'cwd' or 'home'. The other is that Nathan can limit uninstall to the installed files, and keep the directory around.
- Campbell reports we need to work still on how Python operators work within or without context ('data' context). The meeting discussed some cases, but no clear answers popped up yet. Ton mentioned to at least not try to Pythonify the C code when that's not fully finished or frozen.
- Animation system: the dependency graph still fails in cases where 2.4x did work. Bassam Kurdali will provide simple .blend cases for bug tracker. Ton proposed to at least hardcode fix the current C code for all transformation related properties. Dependencies involving custom properties or other non-transform topics (like colors) will be moved to the todo as a 2.6 topic.
- Projects.blender.org and bug tracker upgrade to Fusion Forge halted on a database import, this is being put high on agenda for blender.org system admin.
