Did Jason give a demo or was he giving feedback on a demo?
Is there recording of the meeting? I’d like to watch it if possible.


He was giving a demo and getting feedback from the people at the meeting.

The meetings are not recorded. I think it’s important for everybody present to say or show whatever they want to say/show, without having to worry about their words later being reinterpreted in different contexts.


Hi, I’ve simplified the code changes done in D12300: NLA: shortcut to rename active strip, and made it no longer depend on another differential. I hope that this makes review easier :slight_smile:
