[Bf-committers] IRC meeting minutes, may 23, 2004

1. wiki in projects site
A wiki could be integrated into the projects site. The way wiki works
could help developers create (better) documentation for the code they
write/maintain. Michel_ and theeth are a bit sceptic about adding more
communication tools, and there was also concern about new
accounts/passwords to remember, but this should be dealt with by
integrating it with the current accounts. Possible maintainers for this:
sateh and jesterKing.
Before possibly integrating a wiki sateh will upgrade the current gforge
installation and then look if an integrated wiki would solve the
documenting issue. For now people can use
http://www.letwory.net/collab/bin/view.pl/Blenderdev to experiment with.
2. release scenario proposal
Some thoughts on the release scenario proposal. The proposal is the find
a way to show the non-committers how they can be of assistence in the
release process, like testing etc. broken has ideas how to present this
to the users, for instance with a release progressbar with different
stages and description and links to regression testsuite.
3. optimized builds (intel)
A user has offered to buy BF a license for the intel optimising
compiler. Ton will mail him & ML.
4. help menu patch (madprof)
Ton had committed patch, since there had been no response to it.
Suggested to give madprof commit access to tuhopuu.
5. zoom patch
The patch divides the users and developers nicely in distinct aye and
nay groups, when it comes to the 'flipping' behaviour. The 'nay' group
doesn't like the flipping, wants it to be entirely mouseaction relative,
the 'aye' group thinks its much like scaling the view, thus similar to
scaling an object. It is decided we wait for variants to this patch.
6. solution for opening compressed files
Due to removing the option to save compressed .blends from 2.30 without
resetting the 'compressed save' flag it is still possible to save
compressed files with 2.32 and older versions, making it impossible to
open those files with 2.33. Compatability for blender publisher files is
not on the list, though, so people should use Kesters blenderdecompress
7. 2.34 projects
Leon is busy with job, so has not much time to work on it atm, but code
is there. UI (buttons) needs to be integrated better with rest of
interface, theeth and broken will work on that. Theeth will merge it
from tuhopuu to bf-blender so it will be in 2.34 officially.
jandro was not present, so yafray topic is moved to next meeting.
- UV unwrapper
UV unwrapper will not make it for the 2.34 release, so it stay with
tuhopuu for now.
