Thanks for circulating the report, very interesting! It gives some
sense of what happens on a sprint, which I've always wondered. I'd
like to participate on one in future.
Well done all, and best regards,

> The first ever Bazaar sprint in the first ever Birmingham is well and truly
> over. Here's the low-down.
> Jonathan Lange (jml)
> Wouter van Heyst (LarstiQ)
> Andy Kilner (gnublade)
> Russel Winder (russel)
> Stephen Emslie (semslie)
> Szilveszter Farkas (phanatic)
> The sprint went ran on the Friday and Saturday after EuroPython 2009.
> As you might remember, the goal of the sprint was to work on cool UI stuff:
> bling, papercuts, little annoying fixes, simple obvious missing features etc.
> We stuck pretty well to this goal. Here's roughly what got done:
> * Fixed #217031, "bzr launchpad-login -v MYNAME" gives no feedback (jml)
> * Fixed a tilde -> %7E URL translation glitch (gnublade)
> * Released 1.16.1 for OS X & documented how to do it. (szi)
> * Fixed up supported Python version info in bzr (russel)
> * Provided a patch for bug #213185, tag conflicts do not change exit code.
> * Fixed ugly exception being raised on network error in bug #247958 (jml)
> * Submitted patch for #84659, it's been rejected but the bug has moved
> forward. (jml)
> * Updated subvertpy ppa. (LarstiQ)
> And here are some things that we need your help with, still:
> * Submitted RFC patch for LP API support. Still waiting on replies. (jml)
> * Submitted RFC patch for fixing the URL that remote smart servers suggest
> for break-lock. The patch has had replies, but is still waiting on
> _something_ -- a firm "yes" perhaps? (LarstiQ)
> * Worked on bug #308472, getting 'info' to show the server version. Not sure
> what state the bug is in now, I'm pretty sure Stephen sent a patch.
> (gnublade, semslie)
> * I have "#183089 (gnublade)" but I have no idea what that means.
> Apologies if I've missed anyone or anything. Please correct me if I have!
> I also cheated a little and submitted a patch to Launchpad which will make the
> public API way more useful for Bazaar.
> Some other things:
> * It was particularly exciting for me to see Andy & Stephen dig into the
> details of Bazaar and get all the way to submitting patches.
> * It would have been nice to have an easier way of finding easy bugs to fix.
> I sent an email to list about it, and I think it's been resolved (when
> tagging with 'easy', always explain how to fix the bug).
> * I was a little surprised to notice that people are running Bazaar 1.13 by
> default, since that's the version of Bazaar that ships with Jaunty.
> * At the EuroPython conference, Geoff Bache asked me about a patch of his
> that has been languishing without review. I couldn't find this patch on
> Launchpad or BundleBuggy, but then stumbled across bug 183831. There are
> 38 bugs that have patches.
> * We had quite a few interruptions from people at other sprints who were
> interested in Bazaar or Launchpad.
> * I regularly mispronounced Wouter's name as "Jelmer". I'm an idiot.
> * The coffee was terrible and the beer was very tasty.
> I had a lot of fun. Thanks to the attendees and to the EuroPython organizers.
