Hi all,

1) Blender 2.5x project

- Patch offered by Bastien Montagne for review "Weight group modifier":

- Confirmed: we're still on a 2.58 target in June to attempt making  
our 8-week release cycle!

- blender.org development pages need urgent refresh to reflect our  
   Ton volunteers to tackle it monday.

- Update/refresh needed for release cycle checklist: Thomas Dinges  
will help (also remove it from svn to prevent duplicates)

- Nathan, Campbell & Thomas will review old 'BCON' status system, and  
come with proposal for new formal protocals how to manage development  
and release cycles, fitting bi-monthly releases!

- Still important: we might need some kind of developer agreement.

2) Google Summer of Code

- Monday 23 May is official start!

- Which students will share branches, still pending proposal...

3) Other projects

- Lukas Toenne's nodes branch had positive review by Brecht:
(Note: this branch has no particle code anymore only node stuff!)

Actions: first get approval from other (node) team members on  
functionality. Then check on best moment to apply. Lukas proposes  
a.s.a.p. (for 2.58). Main disadvantage: it breaks forward  
compatibility (files saved with this won't read in last release).

- Reminder: there's a cool bake patch for review:
Ton will check with Sergey on way to get at least ESC work, or code a  
nicer way to block UI but have events handled and some redraws for  
progress bars and "Cancel" button.

- (Not code releated) Blender Network proposal is open for review
