Event Timeline

@Brecht Van Lommel (brecht), what is the review process for addons?
Who decides if a new addon is included?
Do we do code review for new addons that are maintained by someone else?
If yes, do we enforce a coding style for newly included addons?
Which "level of code quality" do we expect from such addons?

@Jacques Lucke (JacquesLucke) , I think the submission and review process is still fairly close to the older one outlined here. A few guidelines were being reconsidered for 2.8 (like whether or not people would still be required to create wiki pages).

The decision makers for what is included was the scripting / addons module team. For 2.79 (IIRC) the main people involved with choosing which add-ons would get included with the final release was meta-androcto and lijenstina.

hi, sorry for the delay. We will be able to look at your addon soon. It looks very interesting.
Are you interested in other animation writing addons? We could use some help with btrace.
Thanks for your interest.

Thank you for the update. I look forward to your testing outcome

Regarding btrace, I will be happy to be involved in any programming work related to it (or any other blender add-on).
I just request you to let me know the time commitment needed for the task, so that I can get back to you whether I would be able to manage it.
