Hi Olly,

The VSE is sort-of orphaned. Several people worked on it in the past years, but nobody took ownership of it. I guess you know our module team project system?


In that sense your interest is very welcome! We have a bottleneck though... and that is that in order to add you to the VSE team, someone should review or check your patches.

For the next 2.79 release we will only allow release-compatible patches. For really new features (or recodes) you should do this in the 2.8 branch.

We currently have all our energy focused on the 2.8 project. So I hope you don't mind if detailed feedback takes a bit bit of time. I'll be reminding people of it a couple of times in the coming weeks. We also get a lot of students in the coming month, which takes time and energy from the core team as well.

A good way to get involved is to reach out to the other developers in the irc.freenode.net irc channel. Also make sure you get a test binary out there and reach out to users of the Sequencer!
