  • Dalai Felinto
  • Campbell Barton
  • Sergey Sharybin
  • Thomas Dinges
  • Francesco Siddi


  • Devtalk reorganization was done. Thomas notes that it’s unclear still if user feedback on projects.blender.org should be allowed. Decision is that it should be handled case by case. For actively asking user feedback devtalk should be used, but some feedback on design tasks is ok if it’s on topic and moderated by the module.
  • Manual and its translations will migrate to Git soon, we try to do it this week. Blender UI translations will be done some time after that.
  • Francesco set up self hosted analytics and integrated it across Blender websites. The intent is to use it to replace Google analytics.
  • Quick going over ongoing development projects, admin delegates will follow up with project members where needed.
  • Tasks to be done:
    • Sergey will make copyright.txt changes, add SPDX copyright to replace existing and missing copyright notices.
    • Sergey will make a script to remove branches also from forks for those who want that.
    • Thomas will look at third party license database dump issue next time it’s needed for the release.
    • Thomas will use script created by Dalai to move inactive developers to All-time Developers team.
    • Francesco will post about USD contribution process on devtalk
    • Francesco, Thomas, Sergey will handle mailing lists retirement.
