I would like to second Jody's comments here regarding the timing of the code sprint. Having only attended two of these conferences, I can't speak with any sort of real authority, but from what I've seen, delegates tend to be pretty flogged by the end of the week, be that from thinking or from

Thanks for that Lorenzo and Arnulf! Indeed, mark your calendars because I've booked the week of 15 – 21st June 2009 in Bolsena. I would be happy to work with people to try to get sponsorship lined up for the event this year. I think last year's event was extremely economical from the point

I've been thinking about something similar to the Bolsena event in North America, but it's hard to work out a scheme that will be productive, given the geographic dispersal of folks. I think a C tribe sprint would be excellent, but we're pretty spread out (though biased towards Ottawa / Quebec).

Either way it comes out of the attendees since sponsorship is generally earmarked for those same people. Now if we could get an organization to sponsor the event that wouldn't otherwise get involved... Either way I'm in. Steve On 10/9/2008 at 2:09 PM, in message [EMAIL PROTECTED], Frank

I would go for 3 days - it worked out well for the GeoTools community. Three days is enough time to effect change; but not so much time you get bogged down. I did find timing of a sprint right after FOSS4G to be a bit of a trouble for some (in addition to being tired ) reports this year

Everyone loves a good code sprint... or do they? 2007 brought you the one-day sprint (with the GeoToolsers and uDiggers going for an extended weekend sprint). 2008 brings you another day. 2009 is still thinking about it. How much sprinting would you do? 1, 2, 3, 5, 7 days? I am wondering if the
