Some updates on this front:
Last ccc @vup @leftshift and me decided to build a cheap development version of the Beta.
We wanted to have a cheap camera to be able to develop soft- and hardware for the Beta without the need to invest a lot of money.
Research was done, the cheapest Zynq FPGA development board was found, the cheapest suitable CMOS with okayish documentation was picked and we designed a first Interface PCB to connect the sensor to the FPGA dev board. We build FPGA designs and wrote some software and in the end we had the first still images. The first prototype of the AXIOM micro was built.
However, the initial PCB was quite rough and had major problems (we were doing serious PCB design for the first time in our lives).
This led us to the creation of a second revision, which now is able to shoot moving images, has a proper lens mount and some case.

We found this.
Added storing of last directory, when file was opened. Cannot reproduce other problems (Manjaro, XFCE).
Davidak reported that the newsletter display is missing all text, he is using OpenExchange at mailbox.org.

I created a wiki page for the Coding Guidelines, https://wiki.apertus.org/index.php/OpenCine.Coding_Guidelines
The git commit hash and the date of the last update of the software (beta-sofware repo) is already displayd at login through /etc/motd. This can be different from the creation commit / date of the firmware, but these can be easily added as well. The standard disclaimer can also be added in the same place.
Possible framework, as replacement for ImageMagick: http://www.graphicsmagick.org
more points for the checklist:

I don't think there is a practical solution that allows keeping those two sources of information in sync so closing for now until anyone convinces me of the opposite.

If you need any help with video-editing, I can do it. I have some experience in it. :)
The template is built.. just a bit of editing left... should complete by a day or two.
