Hi everyone,

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

1) Blender 2.69 release

- Release planning stays, we move to "BCon4" (bug fixes only) in a couple of days:

- Stuart Broadfoot will add a new Cycles hair shader still, today or tomorrow.

- Invited for next splash: Pratik Solanki and his Naughty5 team. 

- Everyone's focus remains on bug tracker for rest of month!

- Release coordination will be handled by Brecht van Lommel and Campbell Barton.

- Release schedule reminder: the first official 2.69 RC will be a full release, with new splash and release number. This then is also a branch where bug fixes will happen in.

- By end of this week, we'll make an official test build available based on trunk checkout.

2) Other projects

- Getting users involved in the module teams as stakeholders remains important. Read the doc outlining this system, and how to get connected:

- UI discussions online (like blenderartists.org and twitter) deserve more attention from developers. Every developer who could work on UI topics is just fully occupied still... Brecht proposes to at least add this as a Blender Conference topic. We then can discuss follow-ups or actions too.

- A Blender 2.7x planning hasn't been proposed yet, a lot depends on the outcome of GSoC, which is wrapping up this and next week.

3) Google Summer of Code

- Next week is 'soft pencil down' - means students wrap up their work and make docs and presentations for their work. The week after final reviews have to be handed over to Google.
