Hi all,

1) test build todos

- Special request from user: put back "emulate numpad" option.
   (Suprise at end of meeting, Brecht committed it!)

- Blender game player: is being patched with a 'stubs' C file, to solve 
all unresolved symbols because RNA API is using Editor and 
Windowmanager code. Needs solid solution. For after release.

- Meeting discussed open bugs. No showstoppers, but still enough work!

- Note: Campbell proposes to improve Python UI API names, they 
currently use too much of legacy C code conventions.

- First test build name: 2.5 alpha 0.
   After long debate! But there's a wide consensis to call it alpha, 
which is important too. :)
   Technically the release code is 2.50, next will be 2.51, hence the 
'0' or '1' behind the names.

- Builds are made by:
   Windows 32 and 64 bits: Nathan Letwory
   Linux 32 and 64 bits: Ken Hughes
   OS X 10.5 PPC 32 bits: Jan Devera (devroo):
   OS X 10.5 Intel 32 and 64 bits: Jens Verwiebe

- Pending todos:
   - Splash code (Campbell tries, Matt monday if needed)
   - Splash design: A durian gfx is underway, will be last commit as 
   - Matt finished release notes

2) Other projects

- Brecht will commit tomorrow a new multires system, dumping levels as 
external files to the disk, freeing up a lot of memory. (And yes, bmesh 
future proof!).
