[Bf-committers] 2.7x to 2.8x Migration

Hi there,

We now have a page to help users with migrating 2.7 files to 2.8:

The big topic that is open for discussion and external contribution is the
Blender Internal conversion.

The ideal solution would be a Python script for Blender 2.79 that converts
Blender Internal materials to EEVEE-compatible Cycles materials. It doesn't
need to be a perfect conversion, but at least a way for users to not stare
at pitch black objects when opening their 2.7x files in EEVEE.

We are not prioritizing this at the moment. So this is a perfect
opportunity for someone from the community to help the Blender 2.8 project

Thank you,
