Hi all,
Here are the notes from today's developer meeting. Next meeting is Monday,
10 February 11:00 CET / 10:00 UTC, in #blender-coders on blender.chat.

For the complete report read it on:

* blender.org was under DoS attack last week, but all seems well. Kudos for
Dan McGrath and Sergey Sharybin for keeping an eye on things.
* The 2020 big projects proposal was posed on code.blender.org. No big
concern was raised so for now we move on with them [1].
* LA Blender conference was official confirmed, dates: June 1 and 2. Call
for talks and tickets will come later.
* Tracker curfew [2] is under 1,000 open issues, great work everyone.
* This Friday we start the code quality day (first Friday of each month),
email to bf-committers will be sent soon. Everyone interested in been
involved can hang out on blender.chat to help tackle technical debts, code
refactoring, variables renaming, ...
* Aaron Carlisle is working with Nathan Letwory on a Git-LFS support
proposal. The idea is to start with the manual. Dalai Felinto suggest them
to write to bf-committers since this is a big topic.

Blender 2.82 - bcon3
* bcon4 starts this Thursday, so everyone be sure to commit bugs before
* Anything that comes after must be a critical fix.
* Users encouraged to treat builds from Thursday on as release candidates,
please test them as much as possible.

Blender 2.83 - bcon1
* Nothing to report.

* Ton Roosendaal presented on "Blender, Coming of Age", video is online [3].
* Dalai Felinto gave a short talk on the development room about the
development process (using the VR project as example) [4].
* Meeting with Godot about community management, pull requests, how they
handle feature requests, gltf2 status and integration with Blender.
* FOSSASIA [5] is looking for people to talk about Blender. Anyone
interested that lives in Singapore contact Dalai Felinto to get a contact
with their organization.
