Hi all,

Relative short meeting today:

1) Blender 2.57+, current projects

- Ton will move to tracker triaging again. Campbell will work on BMesh  
and I/O work more.

- Quality of code: keep module owners informed and if you add stuff,  
check tracker!

- Peter Schlaile: are you still available this month? FFmpeg update  
might have issues.

2) GSoC

- How to add branches for students needs decision soon; some students  
could share, mentors will check on who.

3) Other projects

- Brecht: regarding Cycles, this week will focus on integration work,  
for Cycles as well as external engines.

- Sergey: worked with Sean on an option to bake outside 'derivedmesh'  
to save memory, makes bakes possible with 5x more faces in same memory  
footprint (1.9M -> 9M faces).

- Cloth work: Joe has a new solver, he'll further work on this in his  
branch, coordinate it with module owners Daniel/Janne.
