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. If there are newcomers, we will gladly
- give introduction talks.
-* 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.
