    3 You can work on whatever you like. In a way, this is normal Django development, with the advantage/difference that a lot of people are going to be in more or less realtime contact. Some groups will be in the same physical location and the IRC channel will be available for more rapid feedback.
     3More than 100 people around the world have signed up for Friday's Django sprint. What should ''you'' work on, given that so many other people are contributing at the same time? This document attempts to help you answer that question.

    5 If you are in doubt about what to work on, choose to fix existing bugs, rather than add enhancements. Bugs are cases where we know something is not working correctly or as documented.

     9Our development process during the sprint will fundamentally be no different from standard Django development -- that is, contributors scratch their own itches, solve the problems they want to solve, and generally do what they want to do. The difference in the sprint, of course, is that a lot of people are going to be in more-or-less real-time contact, which makes it easier for ''more'' contributions to happen ''faster''. (Some sprinters will be in the same physical location and the IRC channel will be available for more rapid feedback.)
