Saya Developers' meeting #6 (28/03/2009) Summary of Activities

This is a brief summary about what has been discussed in the fifth Saya-VE developers meeting.

About the team:

* Agustin has not been seen since the last meeting. We're assumming that he just left the team.

* This happened after the meeting. I got an email from another volunteer wanting to join. I let him experiment with the latest snapshot of our current code in the meantime.

* Due to his good work so far, Alex was given write access to the SVN repository.

About the tasks:

* The Qt conversion is around 60% done. The welcome dialog is completed, the new project dialog layout is done (C++ implementation pending). The playback controls still need to be adapted into the video player.

* Tasks for Rick (me): Since I couldn't advance at all this month (workload / health reasons) I still have to convert the main window and the video playback controls.

* Tasks for Lubomir: Write the developers' guide for Windows (it needs to be changed as now we use Qt, not wxWidgets). He had some technical problems writing them, but he's working on it.

* Tasks for Brad: Get to compile Saya on Windows with Qt, and help Lubomir in doing so.

* Tasks for Alex: Study more Qt, play around with the code.

* Tasks for Rigo: Implement in C++ the new project dialog that he had designed; write a market-oriented "mission statement" document.

Other Issues worth discussing:

* Jeff found a blog entry about Video Editing. Basically we agreed with the blog entry in that there are currently not working user-friendly video editors.

About the next meeting:

* The next meeting will take place on Saturday, May 2, 2009, 11AM CDT (-0600).
