Hi all,

Here are the notes from today's meeting in irc.freenode.net, #blendercoders.
Wintertime has settled on the Northern Hemisphere, time for meeting is on 1500 UTC again.

1) Targets for 2.73

- Release planning and targets were updated in this meeting, please check!

- Bastien Montagne has a patch to compress shapekeys. 
Needs reviews - mostly because it breaks reading new files with older versions.

- Split normal editing is back on review list, could be target still

- Where is Opensubdiv now? We still prefer to wait for Pixar to release 3.0, which will make an integrated OpenSubdiv much more useful. 

- Not on release targets, but still possible is to add some of the viewport OpenGL project?
We'll hear more from Antony Ryakiotakis tomorrow.

- Chinese and other Asian complex character input feature deserves serious review for 2.73:

2) Other projects

- Blender Development Fund update:

- The NPR ('cartoon render') discussion is ongoing - we all would love to see improvements here, but can we do it in smaller steps?
Join the mailing list:

- Reports on progress from developers in the Gooseberry project will be done separately.
