The PyPy team is sprinting at EuroPython again. This year there are
sprint days_ before (28-29 June) and after (3-4 July) the conference.
Some PyPy core people should be present during both periods.
sprint days: http://wiki.europython.eu/Sprints
If you plan to attend the sprints after the conference we recommend you
to listen to the PyPy technical talk (
EuroPython schedule_) during the
conference since it will give you a good overview of the status of
There are many possible and interesting sprint topics to work on - here we list some possible task areas:
trying out software on PyPy's Python interpreter: the CPython test suite is not all that complete, therefore the fact that we pass most tests is no real indication of bug-freeness. We have tried and know that frameworks like Django and Twisted work with PyPy. Therefore we would like to try running more "real applications" on top of the Python interpreter (ideally ones that have a good test suite themselves and that don't need unusual extension modules). Running things on Windows is also interesting, we know our coverage there is not as good as on Linux.
check and improve Mac OS X support
starting to work on porting 2.6 features to PyPy's Python interpreter
ongoing JIT generator work
of course we are open to other ideas for what to work on. Examples could be working on other language interpreters, sandboxing, ...
