Hacking:Dev Meeting 28 Mar 2011
Meeting page for the Developer Meeting which will take place in the GIMP IRC on March 28th 2011, 10:00 PM CET (GMT+1)
Time for Next Meeting(?): April 11 2011, 10:00 PM CET (GMT+1).
GSoC Student Applications
Official GSoC applications should start coming in on march 28 19:00 utc - that's 2 hours before the meeting should begin. Also, we already have student applications on the mailing list. Some suggestions were made on putting minimal student requirements (not sure how practical this is) and some suggested creating some quick start guides for new developers. Do we want to do anything to get students started? BTW, since this is the developer wiki, such content should be placed here!
Also regarding GSoC, not sure really which rating of ideas should happen, by whom and when, but discussing it should be done or decided on. For obvious reason, the writer of these lines will not participate in that part of the discussion.
Optional topic: Re-Discussing GIMP's programming language
Some developers that weren't present in the last meeting, highly disagree on the attempt to introduce vala into gimp, claiming that it will scare off developers (more than the "simple" C GObject code).
Tell LightningIsMyName and he'll add it :)
To be filled when the meeting ends!
