Ton has announced the new admins and coordinators for Blender development.
It was about time to update the admin team, especially to make sure work on 2.8 will go smooth.
• Bastien Montagne
• Brecht Van Lommel
• Dalai Felinto
• Campbell Barton
• Sergey Sharybin
These are all among the most active contributors to Blender and 2.8.
Next to that, I've asked Dalai Felinto accept the role as Blender 2.8 project coordinator.
He's now being hired by Blender Foundation to keep working full-time on Blender 2.8.
Dalai's main role is to make sure everyone's aligned and that decisions get confirmed or supported by others. Just make sure Dalai's always informed about things. We really need at least 1 person who's up to date about everything that goes on here.
Note that I'm not on this list! I've done this coordinating work back then for 2.5, but I currently have too many other jobs to handle. I'm not coding on 2.8 (sob!) and can't even find time to read the commit logs! How much I love all this 2.8 work and to be involved every day, for real work on Blender I'm just often more in the way (not available) than useful.
