I've replaced the posting with a general blahblah. Everyone here at the 
list can stay, no problem. But I clearly want to confirm that this is 
not the 'official' developers list (yet!). People here are still free to 
invite others, especially when they have knowledge on the requirements 
for a specific OS.
I prefer to keep the discussion focussed at how to make a definite 
release of the Blender code:

- which compiles out of the box, for artist/coders as well.
- which allows all current platforms to do development at:
   Win, Linux, BSD, Solaris, Irix, OSX
- which allows migration to more platforms too (Beos, ...)
- which allows developers to use MSVC project files
- which can be achieved quickly (think weeks, not months)

Currently we are discussing the feasiblity to adopt Cmake for generating 
makefiles and project files.

I would like to get feedback on that, especially for the windows users 
out there.
