 Goals and topics of the sprint 
 ------------------------------
 
+In Gothenburg we have made some first forays into the interesting topics
+of phase 2 of the PyPy project. In Mallorca we will continue the work
+that we started there.
+
+The currently scheduled main topics are:
+
+  - Further work/experimentation with the Abstract Interpreter that was
+    started in Gothenburg.
+
+  - Integrating our garbage collection toolkit with the backends and the
+    code generation.
+
+  - Heading into the direction of adding logic programming to PyPy.
+
+  - Optimization work: our threading implementation is still incredibly
+    slow, we need to work on that. Furthermore there are still quite
+    some slow places in the interpreter that could be improved.
+
+  - If someone feels like it: although vastly improved our socket module
+    is still far from complete
+
+  - In general we need to improve the way we interface with external
+    functions.
