Hi again, 

so the heidelberg sprint wears off and just when 
you thought things were getting relaxed here is 
the next pypy-sync meeting invitation :-) 

pypy-sync developer meeting 1st September 

Time & location: 1pm (30 minutes) at #pypy-sync 

Regular Topics 

- activity reports (3 prepared lines of info,
- resolve conflicts/blockers

Annotated Topics of the week

Recap of discussed development areas until October 

At the meeting at the heidelberg sprint we listed a few areas
that deserve developing focus in the next time: 

- bringing the compiler to good state, Arre and Samuele 
  will try to help and discuss with Ludovic. The idea 
  is to have the compiler effort almost done before the
  October Paris sprint and get rid of the various
  temporary hacks we have around. 

- cleanups in various areas should be tackled, in
  - the translation driving (translate_pypy.py and friends) and  
  - improved test/reporting support. 

Anything else that we want to list explicitely? 
Like lifting the number of Pystones? :-) 

Paris Sprint announcement 

We need to check what the status of the Paris 
sprint announcement is as it should go out 
this week.  Topics as discussed at the end
of the heidelberg sprint: 

    - threading and GC 
    - refactoring/translation features 
    - start on JIT/optimizations/stackless 

Let's reconfirm/extend this and then make sure
that we have it out by the weekend. 

Preparation/Moderation Next pypy-sync meeting 

There is the idea to rotate pypy-sync meeting preparation and
moderation between developers.  So who would like to do some
preparation and the moderation next time?  It would be great
if we had at least 3 people who shift between them unless we
just want to do alphabetical order :-)
