I'm really looking forward to the summit this year, thanks for all the great work in putting it together. Another topic (possibly) is the splitting of the stdlib from the core interpreter repo. We have more experience now with Mercurial to know whether this is feasible, and hopefully we'll have enough representation from the other implementations to know whether it would still be useful.
Since I have not heard anything about a VM summit (although I'm sure it would be easy to have a spontaneous one on Thursday), we might want to discuss how we want to get the benchmarks inline for Python 3 and then what we can do to get speed.python.org http://speed.python.org going. And all of this plays into what the other VMs need from CPython for Python 3 support to be easier.
Instead of a VM summit this year we are having a web development summit on the Thursday before the conference, organised by Chris McDonough. An informal vm summit would be fine if you can get people together.
I've added your and Barry's suggestions to the agenda for the language summit, plus one from Steve Holden on what (more) the PSF can do for alternative implementations.
All the best,
