no organized meeting log this time, for various reasons, however I'm
attaching below the list of decided actions in the meeting, along with
some other off-topic points that were discussed:

** GSoC Student Applications  **
Core developers sign up as mentors (for GSoC)
schumaml: Write mail about application is open, and required skills,
and required code example

** Re-Discussing GIMP's programming language **
For core (non-UI), continue using GObject, use code generators (such
as turbine) and do copy/paste/replace for existing GObject classes
(for the rare case where the generator won't be enough).
For UI, porting widgets to GtkBuilder is an option (and then we'll use
Glade and UI xml files), but any action on the UI is postponed until
we get 3.0 out!

** Default JPEG Quality (quickie, not a real topic) **
Change to 95 2x1, and add a hack to save defaults (using something
like the PNG plugin does, or something more elegant). Note that a
decent system to save plugin defaults, along with other api changes,
is not something that will happen for 2.8.

** bringing UI crew to LGM **
Will be discussed with mitch and schumaml on the financial aspect
(using gimp funds) when the team is fully assembled (parts of it are
already assembled - hurray for guiguru and congrats for the new team

** Resource management for 2.8 **
One member of the new UI team (lead by guiguru) will take care of that

** Offtopic **
Seems as if most GIMP team can't attend LGM this year, but there may
be a GIMP village in the Chaos Communication Camp
(http://events.ccc.de/2010/08/10/chaos-communication-camp-2011/) as
most developers want/plan to attend it.
UI team members will start hanging on IRC once the team is assembled.
Many developers suggested help in setting them up with build
environments and every other thing they need. This will happen soon,
so be nice to the new guys ;)
