Hi all,

Here is the report of today’s meeting:

1) Blender 2.5
-Bug tracker has 175 open issues. Campbell Barton suggests to fix the 
most important ones.

-There are still some issues with Permissions on Windows caused by the 
installer probably.
Nathan Letwory will look into it.

-Plan remains on releasing a 2.58 release in June.

2) Google Summer of Code
-Tomorrow is official start of coding period.

-Students need branches asap. This is a top priority!

-Thomas Dinges proposes to let students/mentors decide wheter they want 
to share a branch with others or have an individual one. Still, all 
branches will be merged to a "staging branch" (A branch which contains 
all GSoC projects).

-Jörg Müller (neXyon) volunteers to create the branches. (after 
students/mentors decided what they want to use)

3) Current projects
Campbell Barton reports on b-mesh:
- It needs to be stabilized - see wiki todo list
- It needs subsurf optimization, currently a lot slower (over 2x)
- BMesh operator api needs review on its own

-Sergey Sharybin reports on the "baking from multires" patch. Was 
reviewed by Brecht and could be committed to Trunk.
Will be checked on a bit more.

-Jeroen Bakker reports that there is still a lot of work to be done 
inside the opencl compositor project.

-Brecht van Lommel reports he made some progress on render api updates 
and opencl support last week (Cycles Branch).
Will continue this week.
