Vertex_Slide by ValterVB

  • we need to look at this script, it was tagged for review but not reviewed after 2 weeks.
  • http://projects.blender.org/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=27561
  • ValterVB comment:
    • Campbell have warning me that the big issue is that I change from Edit Mode to Object Mode and viceversa for every Draw, so can be slow with big mesh (I think that work good with less of 100K vertices). So I need to know if this is a locking problem, because I haven't solution for this.

General Changes/Fixes

  • MichaelW (cowtools) has scripts in release for some time.
  • meta-androcto asks he be promoted to a Senior dev.

4/ Proposals

  • 1/
  • Proposal For Assigning scripts Contrib/Upload > Meta-Androcto
  • I feel the system of assigning scripts should be:
  • When a script is reviewed in Upload, the Reviewer/Senior Dev assigns the script to him/herself.
  • When the script gets moved to Contrib, the Script Author is then assigned the script.

  • 2/
  • Proposal to grey out broken scripts by Crouch.

  • 3/
  • Proposal to add "extra-info" to bl_info - Hart.

5/ Misc
