On this list the second item at the top in the Tools section, Navigation manipulator, has T54641 attached to it, but that's The Multi-object support master task so perhaps it was intended to be attached to the third item, Multi-object editing, instead?

Will the projects, tags and descriptions on Phabricator be updated/added before the beta?
As it would be a nightmare to keep track of all the issues that will come when on the front page of developer.blender.org are solid purple tasks with one tag: BF 2.8.

Workbench Engine
EEVEE
Grease Pencil
Annotate
etc...

In fact could the projects get created as soon as possible so tasks can be tagged now, that are backlogged, in order to minimise the blend storm that will happen on the 12th August.


On another note: could there, maybe, be a board on BF Blender: 2.8 for Alpha crashes' (called; for example, "Alpha Stage: Crashes"), Beta Bugs ("Beta Stage: General Bugs") and maybe RC Stage? As then it would be easy visualize crashes/issues at different stages of development/release.


I know tasks are quite loose in their organisation, but for this major release I certainly wouldn't mind chipping in to make things go as painlessly as possible.

I added an Eevee project now, I don't think we need more at the moment. We can continue using the Grease Pencil project for everything related to that, and OpenGL & Gfx for anything viewport and workbench related.

I don't think we need different tags for bugs from different alpha/beta/.. stages, just a single Blender 2.8 one is enough.

@Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) Yeah, Eevee's the main one right now...

Sorry if I was not clear, I ment a Workboard on BF Blender: 2.8.


P.S. You may want to change the permissions on Eevee. As I can change... most things ;)

Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) claimed this task.

We will use the workboard for scheduling task instead of this.
