[Bf-committers] New Developer Q&A, Sunday 7th March

This Sunday is scheduled time for new dev meeting, as useful 1 hr
before normal Sunday meeting.

Suggestions for topics that we didn't cover yet IIRC.
- Good first projects: This comes up fairly often so it could help to
make some lists of good places to start developing, as well as giving
feedback if new dev's ideas if they are appropriate for starting.
- Getting SVN access, quick topic, maybe people are interested in how
devs normally gain svn access, the inclusion of bf-extensions as an
external directory means we can have python devs who can only work on
their own add-ons.
- Debugging basics, how to get a backtrace with gdb, printf, some
other tools that can be useful for checking memory and profiling.

Previously we didn't have much time to go over the topics, so this
leaves time for general Q&A.
