ft_surfacedownsample ft_surfacerefine ft_surfaceretriangulate all serve to do the following Remeshing There is no precise definition, since it often varies according to the targeted goal or application. Nonetheless, it is possible to say that, given a 3D mesh, remeshing consists in computing another mesh, whose elements satisfy some quality requirements, while approximating well the input. Quality has several meanings. It can be related to the sampling, grading, regularity, size and shape of elements. Often a combination of these criteria is desired in real applications. Some remeshing techniques proceed by altering the input, and some generate a new mesh from scratch. I got this description from, where a pdf can be downloaded with an interesting glossary.

Moved bugs from Christiano Michelli to joint development user.

I changed a bunch of bugs that were assigned to fieldtrip-bugs from ASSIGNED into NEW, since nobody is now explicitly working on them.

This one dates from the old days. I don't know whether we still want to do anything with it, but if so, I know just the right person to whom to assign it :o).
