Here is the posting where i offer to organize the first "Minimal
Python" sprint which quickly turned into "PyPy".  It is a response
to Christian Tismer who said in a "P.S." [1] to Gerson Kurz that 
writing "a totally minimzed python" would be quite interesting. 


Christian and me involved Armin (in private mails) in the next weeks 
and we quickly agreed to send out the first sprint announcement and 
invitation to the "Hildesheim" sprint (containing the exact dates):


Actually, i came to the idea of doing that sprint because i attended 
Zope3 sprints and liked several aspects about them.  The problem here
obviously was that we started out from nothing which is not 
common but proved to be workable. 

hope that helps, if not, ask for more detais. 



[1] Never underestimate the potential of a P.S. :-)
