+         PyPy Leysin Winter Sprint (16-22nd January 2011)
+The next PyPy sprint will be in Leysin, Switzerland, for the
+seventh time.  This is a fully public sprint: newcomers and topics
+other than those proposed below are welcome.
+Goals and topics of the sprint
+* Now that we have released 1.4, and plan to release 1.4.1 soon
+  (possibly before the sprint), the sprint itself is going to be
+  mainly working on fixing issues reported by various users. Of
+  course this does not prevent people from showing up with a more
+  precise interest in mind.
+* We will also work on polishing and merging the long-standing
+  branches that are around, which could eventually lead to the
+  next PyPy release.  These branches are notably:
+  - fast-forward (Python 2.7 support, by Benjamin, Amaury, and others)
+  - jit-unroll-loops (improve JITting of smaller loops, by Hakan)
+  - arm-backend (a JIT backend for ARM, by David)
+  - jitypes2 (fast ctypes calls with the JIT, by Antonio).
+* And as usual, the main side goal is to have fun in winter sports :-)
+  We can take a day off for ski.
+Exact times
+The work days should be 16-22 January 2011.  People may arrive on
+the 15th already and/or leave on the 23rd.
+Location & Accomodation
+Leysin, Switzerland, "same place as before".  Let me refresh your
+memory: both the sprint venue and the lodging will be in a very spacious
+pair of chalets built specifically for bed & breakfast:
+http://www.ermina.ch/.  The place has a good ADSL Internet connexion
+with wireless installed.  You can of course arrange your own
+lodging anywhere (so long as you are in Leysin, you cannot be more than a
+15 minutes walk away from the sprint venue), but I definitely recommend
+lodging there too -- you won't find a better view anywhere else (though you
+probably won't get much worse ones easily, either :-)
+Please *confirm* that you are coming so that we can adjust the reservations
+as appropriate.  The rate so far has been around 60 CHF a night all included
+in 2-person rooms, with breakfast.  There are larger rooms too (less
+expensive) and maybe the possibility to get a single room if you really want
+Please register by svn:
+  http://codespeak.net/svn/pypy/extradoc/sprintinfo/leysin-winter-2011/people.txt
+or on the pypy-sprint mailing list if you do not yet have check-in rights:

+You need a Swiss-to-(insert country here) power adapter.  There will be
+some Swiss-to-EU adapters around -- bring a EU-format power strip if you
+have one.
