Added me to the list of sprinters

September 2007 Django sprint

On Friday, Sept. 14, 2007, we're going to have a sprint to try and reduce the open ticket count. See the original announcement to django-dev for some details.

Developers around the world, both new and experienced, have already expressed much interest in participating, so there should be people available to help in most time zones.

What is a sprint?

Basically, a Django sprint is an excuse for people to focus their undivided attention, for a set time frame, on improving Django. We'll communicate via the Internet, and the people in Chicago and Mountain View (if, indeed, that option pans out) will just have a focused place to gather, along with better communication and the other benefits of face-to-face interaction.

Anybody can participate and contribute, and there's no obligation or expectation. If you've never contributed to Django before, this is the perfect chance for you to chip in.

To do

Between now and next Friday (or on the day), we need to

  • Create an IRC channel for the event.
  • Write up a list of things that newcomers can do, particularly how to help triaging bugs.
  • Work out a way to easily pass "possibly ready" bugs to people with commit privileges.
