A sprint is a focused development session, in which developers pair in
a room and focus on building a particular subsystem. A sprint is
organized with a coach leading the session. The coach sets the agenda,
tracks activities, and keeps the development moving. The developers
will sometimes work in pairs using the Extreme Programming (XP) pair
programming approach.

The sprint approach works best when the first few hours are spent
getting oriented -- presenting a tutorial for the development
material, laying out the stories to tackle for the day, getting
everyone a CVS or SVN checkout to work with.
