BTW: who wrote the long explanation about the B-Con on blender.org? I  
didn't... I thought Matt wrote this even?

Anyhoo, here's a short text proposal for what bcon3 can be:

- finish work on approved projects
- bugfixes, feature fixes
- smaller maintenance/improvements by module owners

- only bug & feature fixes.

People who 'own' parts of Blender's code should be free to work on that  
until we move to real cvs freeze in bcon-4.
