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
