Fort Collins' own Linux and Python advocate Sean Reifschneider blogs PyCon 2005. Interesting photos and fun commentary. My suggestions for code sprints at the MapServer Users Meetings has become a running joke among MapServer developers, but these photos have inspired me to run the old flag up the pole one more time. Past two years, the MapServer project has scheduled releases to coincide with the meeting; this leaves most of the developers in no mood for programming. Any sprinting would probably have to be on some project other than MapServer itself.
update: Hobu just informed me that he proposed sprinting at the OSG05 organizing meeting and it was shot down immediately.
