  1. PyPy Sprint in Heidelberg 22nd - 29th August 2005

    The next PyPy sprint will take place at the Heidelberg University
    in Germany from 22nd August to 29th August (both days included).
    Its main focus is translation of the whole PyPy interpreter
    to a low level language and reaching 2.4.1 Python compliancy.
    To learn more about the new PyPy Python implementation
    look here:

    Goals and topics of the sprint

    One of the main goals of the sprint is going to be a 0.7 release of
    PyPy. The 0.7 is meant to be the first self-contained PyPy version but
    still alpha with some C-extension modules missing and not meant for
    production use.

    Therefore the topics of the sprint will be:

    - translation efforts: it's not completely clear now what related
    task will be left at that time
    - work on 2.4.1 compliancy: there are some failing compliancy tests
    on which we plan to work
    - rewriting c-extension modules/integrating existing rewrites
    - all kinds of small release issues
    - possibly some more LLVM efforts

    Location & Accomodation

    The sprint will be held in a conference room of the Institute of
    Physics, University of Heidelberg. We have WLAN connection there and
    small kitchen to make tea and coffee. `See here`_ how to get there from
    the Heidelberg main station.

    There is a huge number of hotels_ in Heidelberg, all of which are
    unfortunately rather expensive. It should be no problem to reach the
    sprint venue from anywhere in Heidelberg. As an alternative you could
    also take a `hotel in Mannheim`_ which you can reach in 15 min from
    Heidelberg with the train.

    Exact times

    The Pypy sprint is held Monday 22nd August - Monday 29th August 2005.
    Hours will be from 09:00 until people have had enough. It's a good
    idea to arrive a day before the sprint starts.

    Network, Food

    The Heidelberg Altstadt can be reached in approximately 10 min from the
    sprint venue. There you will find all kinds of restaurants and fast food

    You will probably need a wireless network card to access the network
    although we could set up a WLAN to cable bridge if necessary.

    Registration etc.pp.

    Please subscribe to the `PyPy sprint mailing list`_, introduce
    yourself and post a note that you want to come. Feel free
    to ask any questions there! There also is a separate
    `Heidelberg people`_ page tracking who is already thought
    to come. If you have commit rights on codespeak then
    you can modify yourself a checkout of
