Hi all,

Here's a summary of today's meeting:

0) General notes

- Terry Wallwork added Blender Gamekit2 now entirely in wiki:

- the server with svn and FusionForge (trackers) is having hardware  
troubles. It's being monitored full time, and if problems persist it  
will be moved to new system.

- Luca Bonavita is working on the wiki migration to a dedicated  
server, new install and css and skin updates together with Francesco  
Siddi. Expectation is that it goes live in a week.

1) Blender 2.5x proceedings

- Sergey Sharybin notices that usage of symmetric brush and "crazy  
space" sculpting (on deformed meshes) still has issues. He'll work on  

- The Python script registry discussion is still unresolved.

- We have a couple of GPL conflicts in our code base (GPL 2, 2 or  
later, and 3). Ton will contact the C code authors, Luca checks the  
the addon scripts and fixes template:

2) Other projects, branches

- No branches news!

- A long discussion went on about fundraiser models, based on doubts  
expressed that money is given out personally to developers, without  
any guarantee it will end up with something. Ton will consult other OS  
foundations if there's experience and policies for this.
For as now, BF prefers to have community driven bounty systems  
organized independently, and involve volunteering or paid developers  
on equal basis.
