[pypy-dev] Stackless PyPy mini sprint 2007

Hi Stackless PyPy people.

We have been sprinting once, quite a long time, ago.
Time to start over, again.

I'm thinking of doing a mini sprint, before the PyPy cleanup-sprint.

It should be a last sprint of clarifying issues which are not
resolved, yet, concerning completeness of app-level basic
Stackless implementations, and it should lead to an almost final
application of the scalability goals stated in PyPy.
Maybe these statements need to be adjusted as well.

Effectively, I'd like to target this as the final sprint before
transforming results into RPython.

As a wish, RPython implementations might me tackled as well.
But my primary intent is to have a very complete, well-tested
code-base for app-level stackless, including composability.
I will give a very intense introductory talk about this in the
very beginning. Everybody will conceive composability as a simple
concept which is not really new, but becomes new by introducing
coroutines as the underlying structure for everything.
This is non-intrusive, it just needs to be understood.

The sprint can be done in my house, with a limit of about five
external people, free food and accommodation included.
I think a period of three days would be appropriate. Please
give me timing proposals and different opinions as you see fit.

Sincerely -- chris
