Feel free to post to this thread to request/suggest a topic!


  • Investigating package signing for Slicer on mac
    • As a solution for slow startup times
    • Self-signing the package seems to improve the time
  • Discourse as an image bucket for documentation
    • Some manual-ish steps to deduce final url
  • Discussion of correct origin of issues for the bug tracker
    • User issues should start on the discourse, GitHub issue created if needed
  • More scene view issues
    • Andras will be working on this
    • Only store / restore state of display nodes (non data)
    • Steve - remove scene views in favor of sequences?

Regarding scene views: what Iā€™m going to try is to change scene views so that internally the data is saved in a sequence but the GUI for creating and restoring scene views will remain the same. Scene view nodes will be converted to sequences automatically when the scene is imported.
