Hi all,

Here are the notes from today's 15 UTC meeting in irc.freenode.net #blendercoders.

1) Targets for Blender 2.79

- Planning and targets list:

- Sergey Sharybin: Cycles OpenCL updates (GPU, AMD) updates have been merged in master.
Kudos to Mai Lavelle for the good job.

- OpenHMD: a test build will become available, but waits for a small fix.

2) Blender 2.8 projects

- Campbell Barton sent a first '101' doc to the UI list:

Please join UI developer list to feedback:
the https://lists.blender.org/mailman/listinfo/bf-interface

- Dalai Felinto reports good progress on the 'upgrade opengl' project:

- Campbell works on a replacement of OpenGL 'picking' for selecting, an approach that
allows Z-sorted arrays of all elements under the mouse pointer or any border.
This is in master now, User Preferences toggle under GL Select.

3) Other projects and GSoC

- Call for mentors! If you are available to mentor students and review applications,
contact Bastien Montagne, Sergey or Ton Roosendaal.

- Tom Musgrove coordinates the promotion of Blender GSoC everywhere. 
For example: make gifs to share on Twitter or Facebook.
"Best 3D coding summer job for students, go to blender.org". Or something funnier :)
