For the complete report read it on:

* Blender minimum version bumped to 2.90 - to warn users that jump
from 2.90 to LTS.

  - Bcon1: July 22
  - Bcon2: September 16

  - Bug sprint 2: November 2 - 6

Blender 2.90
* bcon4 this Wednesday August 17th - only critical bugs should be
fixed after that.
* All commits to the 2.90 branch should go through code review - this
was part of the release cycle. already, but we will try to be really
strict about it this time.
* All the issues on the 2.90 workboard should be fixed by Wednesday or
moved to 2.91

Blender 2.91
* Blender 2.91 already has a schedule and a workboard.
* Howard Trickey would like the new boolean project to move onto the
workboard for 2.91 - he is still waiting for Campbell Barton to look
at it and will tag as 2.91 meanwhile.
* Custom Space for Constraints may also be a 2.91 target, but the
animation module should assess that.

Google Summer of Code
* The Google Summer of Code is coming to an end, and this is the last
week of coding.
* At the end of the next week the final code and reports will have to
be submitted to Google.
* Students are to wrap things up and document and submit code for review.
