Hi all,

Here are the notes from today's developer meeting. Next meeting is
Monday, 2 March 18:00 CET / 17:00 UTC, in #blender-coders on

For the complete report read it on:

* Blender has been accepted in the Google Summer of Code this year
once again [1].
* Grease Pencil refactor blogpost and video [2][3].
* The User Interface and Usability mini-workshop last week was great.
** Asset Manager (T73366) is updated with the latest design.
** Particle Nodes (T73324) needs update in the missing topics (which
nodes are part of the milestone, how to tell local and "global" inputs
apart, ...).

* Campbell Barton suggests two fixes could make into an eventual 2.82a release:
 * T73898: UDIM crash changing form tiled to single rBd6977b5
 * T73862: Fluid Sim file handle resource leak rB60890cc
* Developers to keep an eye on the tracker to see if there are more of
these (fixes or reports).

* There is currently a regression in master that affects add-ons (T74139).
* Grease Pencil refactor was sent for review. The code review is under
control, but the UI team is yet to look at it.

* Campbell Barton's proposal for keymap guidelines [4].
* Bugs are going up. Developers to stick to the 2-day weekly curfew
for bug fixing [ 5].
* Sybren Stüvel alerts triagers to be more strict on accepting
production files in the tracker. Asking for a minimal file is not
optional in these cases. Similar to reproduceable issues, if the
triager ends up with a better file, do share it [in other words, just
follow the "Life of a Bug document [6]"].
