Goals and Suggested Sprint Areas

The primary focus will be on getting new features into 3.0 before the first alpha. We hope to have a solid, stable and reasonably complete 3.0a1. You can make this happen and have fun doing it! Come join us.

Tasks are now written up in an online spreadsheet: http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=pBLWM8elhFAmKbrhhh0ApQA

Come Prepared!

Please come prepared so we won't have to waste time helping everybody with their setup. Bring a laptop (preferably running Linux or OSX; we have limited svn setup experience for other systems, esp. Windows). Make sure svn is installed: http://subversion.tigris.org/ -- Check Hasans Blog Entry on subversion for help with other systems.

For Python 2.6, check out the head branch; see http://www.python.org/dev/faq/#subversion-svn (use the instructions for anonymous checkout unless you already have developer privileges).

For py3k, check out the "py3k" branch. Also read PEPs 3000-3999.

In either case, make sure you have at least built and tested it once so you are familiar with the process. It's something like "./configure; make; make test" in the appropriate directory. (For Py3k, half a dozen tests typically fail -- a goal of the sprint will be to fix these.)

Questions

Are you guys on IRC, Google Talk, or something like that? Answer: no IRC AFAIK; some individuals can be IM'ed in gmail chat, e.g. gvanrossum@gmail.com, nnorwitz@gmail.com.

Various Freenode IRC channels appear to be unused: #py3k, #pysprint, #sprynt, etc.. I could register one if there was interest, but it's not strictly required. --pfein on irc://irc.freenode.net

I suspect #python-dev would be sufficient. -- SkipMontanaro

Chicago folks can check out #py3kchicago on Freenode. -- Paul Smith
