Hello Haskellers!

The Darcs Team will soon be hosting its fifth hacking sprint
this October.  We would be delighted if you could join us.


When:  15-17 October 2010

Where: Orleans, France

Who    Anybody who wants to hack on Darcs (or Camp, Focal, etc)
       Beginners especially welcome!

Why:   Darcs aims to have bi-annual hacking sprints so that we can
       get together on a regular basis, hold design discussions,
       hack up a storm and have a lot fun.

What:  We'll be starting work on the next release after the upcoming
       Darcs 2.5. Could we see a much fast darcs over networks?
       Friendlier darcs annotate?  Exciting times ahead...

       We intend to set aside at least one Darcs hacker for mentoring
       beginners, so if you're new to Haskell or to Darcs hacking,
       here's a good chance to plunge in and start working on a real
       world project.

How:   Email me <kowey at darcs.net> to let me know you're interested!
       Keep in mind that we do have funds to help pay for travel
       expenses; just let me know if you'd like to come :-)

Thanks to team Florent Becker and University of Orleans for
generously offering to host this event!

Thanks also to donors from the fundraising drive this year.  We'll be
using that money to help Darcs hackers get to Orleans
