Thanks!  As for the Brighton team:

* Resolved issue1017 - stack overflow in darcs whatsnew
  on very long lines

* Benchmarking suite:
  * Fleshed out the zoo/big-zoo infrastructure for benchmarks
  * Wrote harness for running benchmarks offline
  * Wrote script for generating profiles on several darcs command
    on a large GHC repository

* Profiling
  * Wrote makefile target 'make darcs_p' to enable profiled
    version of darcs to be built in parallel with non-profiling

* Worked on issue711 - developed smarter representation of
  slurpies, reducing lookup time for directory contents

* Camp:
  * developed "chunky" hunk representation and tests!
  * got libcurl working under Windows with Cabal
  * primitive interactive patch selection implemented
  * now use a Repository type rather than FilePath for repos, so
    adding support, for remote repos should be easy

Future work:
 * integrate new slurpy code with sprint branch and mainline
 * visualisation for benchmark results a la language shootout
