 Goals and topics of the sprint 
-XXX The focus will probably be translation issues,
-possibly including garbage collection and threading (?).
+One of the main goals of the sprint is going to be a 0.7 release of PyPy. The
+0.7 is meant to be the first self-contained PyPy version but still alpha with
+some C-extension modules missing and not meant for production use.
+Therefore the topics of the sprint will be:
+   - translation efforts: it's not completely clear now what related task will
+     be left at that time
+   - work on 2.4.1 compliancy: there are some failing compliancy tests on
+     which we plan to work
+   - rewriting c-extension modules/integrating existing rewrites
+   - all kinds of small release issues
+   - possibly some more LLVM efforts

 unfortunately rather expensive. It should be no problem to reach the sprint
 venue from anywhere in Heidelberg. As an alternative you could also take a
 `hotel in Mannheim`_ which you can reach in 15 min from Heidelberg with the
-train. If there is enough interest Carl could try to rent a room in a living
-group (WG).
