Hi all,

Here short notes from the development coordination
meeting held on 2nd of September, 2019.

Quick overview of week work:


* Phabricator patch D5656
* CI investigaton (Jenkins vs Buildbo) - best to continue
with buildbot, since we have know-how for that already


Lots of patch reviews, work continuing.
* Cycles
* Sculpting branch patches


* Feedback handling of bi-weekly meeting. Most happy,
  some questioned the use. Figure out how well can scale.
  Write text as proposal, i.e. keep open for participation.
* Grease pencil meeting / project datablock, proposal to come
  from Grease pencil team


* Release cycle / agenda more public and prominent (visible to
  users, not only developers). Pablo and Francesco were also
  thinking about that, to be worked together.
* BCons description need to better reflect our current cycle (we
  downsized our 5 bcon cycle to a 3 cycle, but need more work).
* Mentorship program started:
  + https://developer.blender.org/T69399
  + https://developer.blender.org/T69403

Follow ups

* Ask Sergey to review Phabricator patch [Nathan]
* Reply to infrastructure internal email about
  buildbot and BlenderID + Phabricator) [Nathan]
* Update Bcon page [Brecht]
* Book the next round of biweekly [Dalai]
* Review OpenXR GSoC [Dalai (1st pass) + Sergey/Brecht]
* Status of remaining GSoC [Dalai]


p.s. I hope the formatting is better than previous mail that
  was sent through Android app (don't do that anymore).
p.s2 Some things have already been handled and changed,
  like the bcon descriptions on the release cycle page at
  https://wiki.blender.org/wiki/Process/Release_Cycle increased
  back to 4 from 3.
