Hi all,

Here's the notes from today's meeting in irc.freenode.net, #blendercoders:

1) 2.70 release planning

- We're still in BCon2 (targets defined). Here's the projects page:

- Sergey Sharybin's work on threaded object updating is going to git master this week - but needs final review confirmation from Brecht still.

- Jonathan Williamson will write down a page with UI targets for 2.70 and later. 

- William Reynish is also available to work on the tabs proposal, and tools/toolbar and other topics

- Jonathan: contacted the original maintainer of Maya keymap (Gianmichele), he's available for future support most likely.

2) Other projects

- Ton Roosendaal had mail from this team: http://irit.fr/~Rodolphe.Vaillant/?e=31
Implicit Skinning is close to a source release. We need to find someone who's interested to help getting this in Blender.

- Meeting further discussed the patch reviewing procedure. "Bad" patches that don't get in (easier to code self) feel like waste of time - where it should be a useful step to become involved.
Ton suggested to think about ways how to assist new developers and learning paths.

- Campbell proposes to add RSVC, to convert SVG to PNG at build time. It is useful for icon bitmaps, to keep them outside of git.

3) Happy holidays!

- Blender Foundation's contribution to make it a fabulous 2014:
