I've been thinking of getting an OSGeo "hacking" or code sprint event
setup in an Italian monastry. Friends of mine take care of the place

wired internet connection, although I wouldn't bet my hand on it if we
all start to download satellite images. It should be perfect for SVN,
IRC and mail.
The cost would be about 200 Euro per person for the week (food not

and large dining space. Obviously since the weather most likely
permits, we would eat outside overlooking the lake.

If there's enough interest, I can start getting people to sign up and
get a booking done. There would be 7 days time, so it can also be
divided into smaller time chunks that are occupied by different
