Hi all,

1) 2.5 test build

- A new testbuild for 2.5 alpha1 is required, especially the 'textures  
get lost' bug makes it unusable.

- Proposal: get confirmed that this bug has been fixed, and check if  
svn status is at least a bit acceptable. Unless showstoppers get  
reported here, we call for Ahoy tuesday end of day eurozone.

2) Current projects

- Campbell shows py api examnple for modal operators + drawing callback:

- Long debate then lead to confusing state of stability and usablity  
of Python API.
Ton's remark was that most people perceive new API calls to "part of  
the specification" whilst this is according Campbell "just alpha and  
users should accept it will change".

- Agreed was that Martin and Campbell would summarize this topic to  
mailing list, and especially about what is considered good py api  
design! What's more or less 'stable' and what not?

- Quite some time was also spent on python security topic. Still needs  
more clarity... or clear proposals for how to move on.

Note for all: new default for .blend loading is to not run Py scripts  
in this file, until better system gets agreed on. So it's "safe" to  
load .blend files in current svn Blender. (no warrenty! :)

3) Python registry

- Martin feels like there is useless duplication in registry of  
scripts, and proposes another method. Will send proposal to list!
