Here are the notes from today's Blender 2.8 planning meeting.

= Last week reports =

* Bastien: Spent quite some time fixing array modifier for 2.79 (it was
producing broken topology! The array, not Bastien). Worked a bit on
* Campbell: Worked on custom manipulator, but got bounced to other tasks
like bug tracker.
* Clément:  Was staying at BI talking planning, optimizations and design
discussions (i.e. probes). Also had better area light implementation with
Luca. In addition, discussed hair in Eevee with Luca.
* Dalai: Was in the meetings with Clément, with bit of bug tracker work.
The render_to_draw, render_to_image still couldn't be tackled yet. Brought
Link/Append back.
* Luca: Implemented new drawing modes for particles (acceleration,
velocity). started working on PBR hair for Eevee.
* Sergey: Was mainly on the bug tracker duties.

= This week's plan =

* Bastien: More tracker, get workspace in, ideally resume work on static
override & assets
* Campbell: Will keep working on manipulator, probably will start with
batch creation optimizations (manipulators are high-priority)
* Clément: Probes and shadow update tagging (aka shadow optimizations, to
update shadow only when needed).
* Dalai: Move new Eevee docs to wiki, write code.blender.org big post about
current Eevee state, and specific next steps. Will work on dupli-group
support for DEG iterator.  If the week has any spare days, to once again
get render_to_image/render_to_view tackled. Tuesday will be on grease
pencil meeting.
* Luca: Will continue working on PBR hair for Eevee.
* Sergey: Will work on depsgraph code.blender.org post. Then will be
working on copy-on-write implementation.

With best regards, Sergey Sharybin
