The proposal deadline for PyCon in in two days (Jan 15). Is anyone going to attend? It seems that the motivation to go there has dropped. And it is much too early to even start thinking about a sprint there, so it most probabl y won't happen.
Jacob and I will probably be in town then anyhow. And the Sprint situation is as follows: Jeremy Hilton is organising them. Space is free. Accomodation is not, and that is the killer in D.C. I have told him that if we get our funding, we would probably want to have a sprint there, and if we don't get our funding we are probably not coming. He is fine with this.
No sprint is fixed. The Austria sprint isn't sure at the moment. Then t here are many vague ideas around at the time, all in April (Easter is 11 April ): the ACCU conference (before or after); Switzerland (April is university holidays so sprint rooms are easy to find); Dublin? Elsewhere?
Jacob and I will not be able to make it then, but don't let that stop you ....
