Hi everybody,

We'll be hosting a couple of Darcs hacking sprints in the beginning and end of March.


The first will be on Friday, the 9th of March, in Córdoba, Argentina.  Guillaume Hoffmann will be helping new developers to get started with Darcs hacking on some starter tasks.

The second will be from Friday to Sunday 30 March to 1 April, in Southampton, UK.  I'll be there, along with Owen Stephens from our 2011 GSoC project and hopefully some other denizens of the #darcs IRC channel :-)  In the UK sprint, you can take part in planning the 2012 Google Summer of Code and help us to flesh out a strategy for getting from here to Darcs 3.  Some of us are even planning to work on prototypes for some proposed new conflict management ideas, so it should be fun.

Sprints are for anybody who wants to help out with Darcs development in any way, and if you're not already a seasoned Darcs developer, they are a great chance to get your feet wet with the project.  We do have a travel fund to help you get to the sprint (please let us know in advance so that we can budget accordingly.)

Finally, if you can't make it to the sprint or join us online, you can also help by donating to the project so that other people can travel.


Thanks, all!
