Combining a programming sprint with a documentation and a marketing effort seemed to be a great way to get people involved and working together: more than 25 people (!) joined us on irc to participate in the 13th Plone Tun-Up held on Friday, April 3rd, 2009, from 9am-11pm US ET.

Among the participants (in order of appearance): dukebody, HammerToe, hexsprite, pelle, mateolan, witsch, davisagli, ccrownhart, alexpilz1, vedawms, gabriellehp, calvinhp, jluvsu2, darcilicious, steveM, MatthewWilkes, claytron, (apologies to those I missed!)

Our LARGEST Tune-Up group yet accomplished a lot last week:
• 5 documentation team editors made a huge amount of progress on planning a doc team sprint and creating documentation to accompany PLIPs being released in Plone 3.3;
• claytron updated buildout documentation to be 3.2+ compliant;
• Altogether 6 tickets got resolved (see http://tinyurl.com/dmzf9c for details); • We welcomed newbie (and Summer of Code hopeful) mateolan, who jumped right in and worked on a ticket with witsch's guidance; • The Marketing team took turns in updating the "Top 15 Questions About Plone" document that is to serve as our Plone Bible; • jluvu2 lead a uprising to upgrade the dev.plone.org trac to the latest version; • calvinhp installed the bulk update plugin into trac (yeah!) and discussed the upcoming trac upgrade (can't wait!);
• A few tickets got tested and unfortunately had to be reassigned.

The 13th Plone Tune-Up prize winner is dukebody, who will receive a Plone Tune-Up t-shirt. Congrats dukebody! As a side note, dukebody has been a standout on the doc team- he is almost solely responable for coordinating the release of up-to-date documents along side new Plone releases. A big round of applause for dukebody!
