[Bf-committers] New tasks for the modules - need help with details / descriptions

Hi all,

Brecht and I went over the list of modules (T63725), and their listed
tasks. Most modules had a few tasks missing, tasks that we knew were
part of the module roadmap yet was nowhere to be seen. We also shifted
some tasks around, besides creating new ones.

This should help us all to prioritize our work, to give everyone a big
picture of where we want to move, and to welcome new developers to get
involved in projects that are already in our sight.

No task should come as a surprise since there are tasks we all
discussed in the past here and there, just failed to make them public
in our open channels.

Thus the following list are the tasks that were not in
developer.blender.org yet. Please help fill in the blanks, adding to
the tasks information about our latest design discussions on them.

If you want to see them as clickable link, go to:

That aside, sorry for bombing everyone's email while creating these
tasks. Things should go back to normal now.
