David, It looks like this is shaping up to be quite an event!
The dates on the wiki page still seem very open, but you mention mid-March. Can we be more precise with the dates that are being considered? March is already not that far away and it would help to have a tighter window for us to start pitching this to mgmt. As for the lodging, all these ski chalets sounds wonderful. The only thing I would suggest is that, given the nature of this work to be done (sounds to me like probably more debating than coding, necessarily) it will be crucial to have a big meeting space and a projector so that people can make presentations to the group as a whole. It is great to see CampToCamp stepping forward to organize this event, I think it will be a great opportunity to get some good work done. Erik ps.
