Hi folks! This event is happening in about two months.
You can find more details and RSVP at the following links:
Bloomberg is also about to provide travel assistance for a few mentors to attend at each location. If you would like to be a mentor and require travel assistance, please reach out to me off-list directly.

The weekend of October 27-28, simultaneously in London, UK and New York City, USA, Bloomberg will host a Python packaging and distribution tools event. Please mark your calendars!
If you live in North America or Europe and would need assistance to attend this as a mentor/helper, watch for more details in July.
If you live outside of the US or UK and would need an invitation letter to get a visa to travel to one of these sprints, please write to Kevin P. Fleming at Bloomberg, kpfleming AT bloomberg DOT net, and he'll start setting you up.
Thanks to Bloomberg for their generosity. They're already a Platinum PSF sponsor, and they'll host this, pay for a maintainers'/mentors' dinner the night before, provide clusters of cloud virtual machines for the attendees to use, and book and pay for some contributors' lodging and travel.
This'll be an opportunity to advance Python packaging/distro tools, teach new contributors (including many Bloomberg employees), and yeah, if you want to get to know Bloomberg for career reasons, that too. :)
We hope mentors can arrive Thursday night 25 Oct, do prep, setup, and dinner on Friday, then participate Sat-Sun, then leave Sunday evening or Monday.
We'll be putting more details on these lists (distutils-sig and pypa-dev) and at https://wiki.python.org/psf/PackagingSprints .
Thanks to Bloomberg folks Mario Corchero and Henry Kleynhans in London and Kevin P. Fleming in New York City for coordinating this, and thanks
