#Update: Video-link added
This topic is related to the video posted at GitLab? Gitea? Call for participation on the future of Blender's development platform - YouTube
Today Pablo helped me reach out via Blender’s Youtube-channel to get the word out to developers and users of Blender that we’re in need of their feedback, comments, help. This devtalk-topic is here to collect some of this feedback and progress on this front.
Help , you ask ? Yes!
As the video points out, we are currently using software on developer.blender.org which is due to be replaced. This is needed because no new updates/work/fixes will be coming for it. The software has been abandoned by the original creator (facebook), and thus we should be moving to something else.
This ‘something else’ should also be better,faster,more useful, etc,etc.
Since i’ve started work here ( two months ago ) , I have been able to contact a number of developers about their thoughts already, but its clear that there’s a whole lot that I have not reached yet. The video, and this topic, are ways to get more feedback/commentary. In short: to get the word out.
When the video’s uploaded, I’ll add the URL of it here so people can have a look at it (if they didnt land here because of it, already)
In short, if you are using Developer.blender.org for participating in blender development:
– What do you like about it
– What do you dislike about it
– Are there specific workflows, features or process that you expect might need special attention when Blender moves to different software.
– Are you perhaps using a feature of the website for something else ? (using the API, etc)
– What are things that developer.blender.org doesnt do at all yet, but should (in your oppinion)
If you have a short remark, posting it here will be enough to get my attention. If it’s a longer story or you need a video-meeting to talk through some of it, please reach out and drop a mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
For anyone who decides to take the time to write something down: thank you !
