> Hi all,
> I proudly present to you the official Blender 2.5 support team!
> Campbell Barton gets a year contract, and will fill Brecht's position.
> He will be working for Blender Institute, which might mean he has
> (current and future) Open Movie related assignments as well. For at
> least the first half the year his main focus will be stabilizing
> Blender and the Python API.
> And! Thanks to additional sponsoring the Blender Foundation can also
> hire:
> Nathan Letwory and Janne Karhu, each for 7 months half-time. They will
> be fully assigned to the job "get Blender out of beta", manage bug and
> patch trackers, support other developers, and get our documentation
> updated. They will officially start on September 1st.
> Diego Borghetti is still working part time on tracker bugs as well,
> his contract has been extended to end of September. I will also check
> on doing a more visible donation (subscription?) system for hiring him
> or another additional official Blender developer for support topics.
> Lastly: I'm planning to be also be available for development,
> especially after the Sintel premiere and Conference. My assignment
> will be to wrap up unfinished Blender 2.5 project topics, and ensure
> the UI works as pleasant and fast for experienced users as they were
> used to in the previous versions!
> I think we have a great line-up this way, with team assignments that
> will have a clear benefit for everyone out there. This kind of work is
> the least Blender Foundation should organize.
> A discussion how to extend this, like a pay-for-feature, still has to
> be done. My preference still is to organize it independently, as
> opportunity for new consultancy and integration business around
> blender.org.
> Exciting times ahead!
> Laters,
> -Ton-
