Here is what I know happened in other groups:
Armin and Laura worked on rffi. After 2 days of trying different approaches
and getting stumped each time, they made a breakthrough on Saturday, and
managed to produce a fairly complete slution in a matter of a few hours.
Making the solution more complete would require a rewrite of ctypes (Ick!).
Maciek worked on getting PyPy to be self hosting under pypy-c. This succeeded
before he left the sprint.
Jakub worked on more scheme features. With the help of Antonio, he managed to
get quite a bit done. Exactly what he did, I don't know.
Christian worked on fixing pickling of tasklets. He got as far as
understanding what the real problem was before I left.
Michael and Samuele worked on malloc cleanup. I think they were fairly
satisfied with the result.
Samuele found and fixed a very nasty bug somewhere in the translator
toolchain. Exception transformation was dependent on the order the graphs
were evaluated. The result was that exceptions could be lost without a trace.
There were 3 people who's names I have forgotten who worked on better
results checked in, but I don't know how complete it is.
I think Holger did some work on improving py.test. That was at least his plan,
but I never got a chance to ask what he actually did.
I think that is about it.
