does this mean the upspring source is going to become part of the spring git?

it is already fully ported to linux, people seem to have a hard time finding it though ;)

I only really want to make a subset of the upspring functionality (basic model manipulation and S3O import/export, maybe 3DO), and could use some help writing file importers or other stuff...
One of the things I'd planned to do in my branch was Argh's first wishlist item, but that isn't really "subset" functionality. Maybe a native Wings3D importer could be nice too...

iirc the wings3d model format is more of a binary dump of the internal erlang representation. As such a wings3d importer is nontrivial.

AF, ask Trepan, since he apparently worked a lot on Wings at one point (which would have been helpful to know when he was active here, and might have changed a few things, I didn't know to what extent he was playing Gandalf, because I don't spy on our coder's work outside this place, I figure if they want to make it my business, they know where to find me <shrugs> but whatever, what's past is past). If he doesn't tell you to just go to hell, he might be really, really helpful, even if he's just feeding you minor tidbits.

Yup, that would be great and useful, all by itself.

One important thing we'd want to implement is some form of API for extensibility, so that we can easily write in support for assorted different things.

Also, a .blend importer wouldn't hurt. ;)

Yeah, I'm looking at Mono.Addins for this kind of thing.
