Hi Richard,

We'd be happy to have you as maintainer of the VSE with commit rights.

I'll mail you privately about the details.

> test feature and merge it with official master branch.

> and proxy management rework. Next step would be compiler optimizable and
> universal image processing library.
> Also I would like to create cleaner and simpler code of basic underlying

> As for reviewing code, I have access to community of VSE users and I can

> users prior to committing the code. Also for any code, that reach out of
> VSE scope, I will request additional review.
> Unfortunately, I have no experience in film industry, or even software
> development. I will be happy to leave this role to anybody more
> experienced, but VSE needs maintenance.
> tl;dr I want commit rights :)
