here is the summary of today's meeting:

1) Blender 2.61

-All four projects have been merged to trunk:
--Camera Tracking
--Cycles render engine
--Dynamic paint
--Ocean Simulation

Congratulations to everyone involved! :)

-We are now in BCon3, focus is now on stabilization and polishing of the 
new features.
If everything goes according to plan, a release candidate will be 
available beginning of December.

-Sergey Sharybin will look into making the Motion Tracker UI a bit 
easier for non Tracking experts. (make some names more clear etc.) He 
will commit some changes from tomato branch tomorrow.

-Documentation for the new features:
Cycles: http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Doc:2.6/Manual/Render/Cycles
Dynamic Paint: 
Ocean Sim: 
Motion Tracker: needs to be done

2) Current projects
-Ender79 made some changes to make various painting cases work, but 
still a lot to do.
Cycles does not build in the branch currently, some work has to be done 
here as well.

3) Documentation
Discussion about Luca's proposal: 

-Every commit in svn is supposed to have all relevant information in it. 
This can be in the commit message itself, or a link to a blog, but 
preferably in wiki.

  -For new features test and demo .blend file(s) should be added to the 
test svn. These test files should both be suitable for users to learn 
about the feature as for testers to verify it works. Add text 
information in the .blend itself!

  -The Wiki team will assist the developers moving docs over to the wiki 
manual. We will assign doc module owners soon.
