Hey all, here are the minutes from todays meeting on IRC in #blendercoders

Current Projects:

- 2.78 is close but more discussion needed on what's left. Ton proposes we get RC in four weeks, then aim for release by end of August

- ID Remap from Bastien needs more testing, user testing and feedback requested!

Other Projects:

- Lukas Tonne reports the Strand GPU branch is ready for testing hair geometry generation on the GPU. This will lead to implementing physically correct shading models for hair. Branch: https://developer.blender.org/diffusion/B/repository/strand_gpu/

- Nimble Collective has given support for two devs to work on Depsgraph and BAM!

- Reminder, Mike Erwin has started several 2.8 System Design docs, related particularly to the Viewport Project. Please review and add feedback: https://lists.blender.org/pipermail/bf-committers/2016-June/047455.html

Closing note: discussion is being had on whether or not to move back to the Weekly Sunday dev meetings, rather than the thrice-monthly. Seems the new schedule can be a bit problematic. No decision yet.
