I'd like to review and finish various Cycles patches, listed on the
module page here. The ones I've marked as most important are UDIM,
OpenImageDenoise and procedural texture summer of code. I'm quite
confident these could be in 2.81, since they're not that far from
finished. Hopefully we can get more patches done, I should have time
to review but addressing comments and bug fixing would depend on other

Further there is design, code review and assistance for other
projects, which I expect to take up easily half my time.

There are two other things I'd like to help organize, though probably
I would not have time to implement them myself:
* Upgrade our buildbot to run automated tests and make release builds
* Start a project for Blender performance improvements (make tasks,
setup measurements, think of algorithms/designs)
