Apart from a UI discussion, and review of Michels paper, we spent most  
time yesterday on discussing the pros and cons of doing a 2.29.

Planning a full release now is something everyone had doubts about. We  
agreed to work with clear targets for a release, and although they were  
mapped out, it doesn't look like we can finish all of that very soon.  
Reasonable would be to expect 2-3 weeks for it.
That makes it come to close to the projected 2.3 deadline, end of  

Another topic is that I want to start committing new UI stuff really  
soon. This is something more people have to work at, better to start  
with that next week.

Here's what we've agreed on now:

- we don't make an official 2.29, but compile a snapshot. We can just  
call it 'upgrade' or 2.28c. It will become available for test at  
download.blender.org, and announced at the forums and an article.
- I will look work with intrr to get his envmap patch committed, I have  
the code here already
- Apart from this, and from major bugs people need to commit, CVS is  
frozen now.
- I aim at tomorrow for committing the envmap code. Then the platform  
managers can checkout and compile a binary
- when all binaries are ready (thursday?), CVS is open again for all  
projects as described in the roadmap for 2.30.

Platform managers; please verify if this is possible?
