in Berlin-Dahlem. Address and room will be announced,

How to attend?
See bottom of this message.

Well, there is a lot possible.

Current topics which come into mind are

* autoscheduling
* scheduling object
* brain storming!
* Zope Wiki and Documentation
* making channels really stackless
* demo applications
* more regression tests
* real zope apps?
* refactoring Stackless: simpler and configurable
* create a Stackless tutorial
* minimalist Stackless Python with no hardware dependency
* assembly-free Stackless with setjmp/longjmp
* spreading the internals between developers

but this is completely open for discussion.

Well, it will be a bit simpler than the pypy-sprints,
which I think are very difficult, but Stackless
has its built-in difficulties by nature.

This is by far, now and forever, the best possible way
to learn about Stackless Python and to become a core
developer. But no guarantee possible :-)

Well, it is intended that Stackless Python should
be developed further. If you are using or planning to
use Stackless for your products, you are highly encouraged
to support Stackless Python by money and by submitting
your best developers, regardless how painfully they are
going to be missed by the company.

Yes, it is probable and whished, that Stackless Python
will become a topic for training and coaching.
First of all, we will try to leverage our knowledge.


There is no particular schedule, yet, but for the first day.
I am planning to give a talk on Stackless technology, and
to be available for questions and discussion during the
whole first day.
Attendees with small or no knowledge about Stackless Python
are strongly encouraged to join that session.

There are no special arrangements planned. We hope to find
a place for every external sprinter at the home of the
Berlin habitants. I'm taking two already, please don't ask.
