Hackathon might be a bit overstating the event, but an event it will be,
none-the-less. On Saturday, the 19th of January, Joel, Andrew, and I
will be collectively hacking on GNU GNATS with the following goals in

  * Clean up compilation on modern GCC compilers
  * Address Copyright attribution and GPLv3 updates
  * Commit any last minute, long-standing bugs
  * Cut the 4.2.0 version - which has been hanging out on CVS for years

We will likely be talking about future feature development, a new home
for the current GNATS database, and possibly switching from CVS to
Bazaar (GNU's official DVCS) or Git (my preference) - both supported by
Savannah. I will be signing GnuPG keys, since I've created a new key
recently and would like to retire my previous keys.

Please, consider joining us. If you have an important fix in mind before
4.2.0, let your voice be heard.
