[Bf-committers] Microsoft dev support

Sorry, (other peoples replys not the one below)

I thought Microsoft was offering to open up/move towards opening up some
of their formats that are effecting open source applications.

WMV seems to be the only format which effects Blender, therefore my
original comments apply. Is this not the information that Microsoft wants
to hear.

I never once thought this was a "request for WMV support" its a "request
for MS to help open source support WMV".

Let MS do the work.  Don't just jump on the MS bashing wagon and tell them
we don't want them to do the work.

  I personally think a wmv import/export option would be nice, and
  our bmp import/export could probably be improved.

  Another section that could probably use some work is the Windows
  specific ghost section of the code.

  I would welcome any improvements they could provide and would just
  mention that for code to be merged with the main code base it
  really needs to be platform independent and have a compatible
  license with the rest of the code (gpl)

  And finally thanks in advance for anything they could help with.

  We appreciate the offer for help.

  To all the people that have been complaining, come on, Microsoft
  can't force us to do anything. They are offering to help out,
  were still in control of how blender changes and what contributions we
  merge into the code base. The more developers we have the better it
  is for everyone, it doesn't matter where these developers work etc...
