We are having a code sprint June 16-17. Details on the wiki.

On saturday morning (EST) the 16th of June we plan to open a group Skype chat to involve remote people (we will also do this Sunday). It is planned for 15:00 UTC: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?iso=20120616T15. I will coordinate the call via this issue and #mapnik irc on freenode and I will initiate the call. My skype username is d.springmeyer.

Everyone is welcome. If you are seeing this issue, I have you in mind :)

Please comment here if you are interested and if you might be able to join for an hour (to introduce yourself, how you are using mapnik, what features you want to see). And of course, we'll keep the skype line open so you can code and bug people via Skype :)

Pretty sure I can’t fly over to visit, but Skype sounds about my speed!

I'll be asleep (1500UTC is 3am in NZ), but I'll attempt to get up early for the last couple of hours each day.

I'll most likely join in!

Might be a good idea to use something other than Skype so people can join without getting someone to call them from the office. Google hangout, Mumble, Ventrilo or TeamSpeak are possible options.

There's something on the Skype preferences about automatically accepting calls... maybe it will work!

Hi, sorry for not replying right away, I still can't give any promises. My timezone is UTC+2, if I'm at home I will join for a while, even though I probably won't code anything during that weekend ;)

@Komzpa

mew. I'll try to be present on IRC, not sure about skype.

great, thanks everyone for your comments.

I think IRC will be our main form of communication starting at 15:00 UTC. Using #mapnik on irc.freenode.net. As the date grows nearer I will comment back here if video or skype seems viable, but until then assume IRC will be the baseline tool.

Confirming that tomorrow a small group of us will be gathering to work on Mapnik in DC.

11 AM DC Time, and 15:00 UTC we'll be around on IRC. Ping me if you'd like to be connected by voice to say hello and share ideas about where you'd like to see Mapnik go (future and vision). We'll either do skype or google+ hangout.

Several sprinters in DC will not be in at this time (@ajashton and @willwhite), so if you want to catch up with them know that they shouldl be around by ~2 pm DC time, or 18 UTC.

I'll try to catch you guys on IRC. I'm unavailable for anything Sunday but interested in participating tomorrow.

@springmeyer
Mapnik member

great, we are all on IRC now, and I I will be connecting with folks via IRC to call them into Skype (with video if you wish).

@springmeyer
Mapnik member

no skype call going right now, but we'll start it up anytime someone would like to join.
