Hi all,

Here are the notes for today's meeting in irc.freenode.net #blendercoders.

1) Blender 2.79 release targets

- Meeting agrees to move the BCon3 date a week. (deadline to have all targets in master).
Several release targets are still not ready, but they are very near.

- Don't forget the docs! Each new feature can only be committed if you add a release log ready doc.

- Currently the VR display (OpenHMD) branch is getting a critical review. To make a balanced
decision we'd like to hear from more HMD users what they think.


2) Blender 2.8x projects

- The Eevee roadmap, summary is on  https://code.blender.org/
The full doc is here: https://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Dev:2.8/Source/Viewport/Eevee

- Pyshader proposal: https://developer.blender.org/D2577

- OpenGL migration, Mike Erwin works on converting old matrix code. It has to be done all at once
so it's not a project volunteers can help with.

3) Other projects and GSoC

- Anyone who knows universities with strong CG departments, send them over to blender.org.
There is a frontpage link to the GSoC page.
