Here is the report of today’s meeting:
- Bug tracker has 175 open issues. Campbell Barton suggests to fix the most important ones.
- There are still some issues with Permissions on Windows caused by the installer probably. Nathan Letwory will look into it.
- Plan remains on releasing a 2.58 release in June.
Google Summer of Code
- Tomorrow is official start of coding period.
- Students need branches asap. This is a top priority!
- Thomas Dinges proposes to let students/mentors decide wheter they want to share a branch with others or have an individual one. Still, all branches will be merged to a "staging branch" (A branch which contains all GSoC projects).
- Jörg Müller (neXyon) volunteers to create the branches. (after students/mentors decided what they want to use)
- Campbell Barton reports on b-mesh:
- It needs to be stabilized - see wiki todo list
- It needs subsurf optimization, currently a lot slower (over 2x)
- BMesh operator api needs review on its own
- Sergey Sharybin reports on the "baking from multires" patch. Was reviewed by Brecht and could be committed to Trunk. Will be checked on a bit more.
- Jeroen Bakker reports that there is still a lot of work to be done inside the opencl compositor project.
- Brecht van Lommel reports he made some progress on render api updates and opencl support last week (Cycles Branch). Will continue this week.
