Saya-VE 1st developer meeting (29/Aug/2008) Summary of activities.


* Developers who were silently kicked out (suprise! This wasn't
mentioned in the meeting) due to lack of activity and reporting :

part of the UI, you have a lot of chances of being accepted again.
Please message me.

* Official communications channel for the devs are this group ( )
and gmail chat (aka GTalk, Jabber). For this, all members are required

) and for releasing binaries / docs.

(oops, forgot to say in the meeting: Devs must get accounts both at
Berlios and Sourceforge)

their worth.

* New members must prove their worth by submitting one or two patches
before being given SVN access.

* If a dev won't be available for some time (i.e. vacations), he MUST
post it on this group (there's a specific thread for it).

* A "status with progress bars" page will be added to the website.

* Links with research info will be given to me so I can post them on
the website, under the "research" page.

also design the progress report with colored bars, which I'll post on
the website as soon as it's given to me.

* I (rick) will work on the CORE and RENDERER module. The effects /
rendering part is still pending. If anyone wants to give me a hand
