Format

This event is conducted as a "Rolling Sprint", i.e. it's not about a fixed amount of people sitting in a room for a fixed number of days but an event that extends over the whole DebCamp period with the opportunity for people to "hop on" and "hop off" for one or more days. This makes it easier for interested parties who are new to the Debian Perl Group and also for participants who have more plans for DebCamp than one single area of work.

The daily schedule of the "Rolling Sprint" will be:

  • A daily coordination meeting after lunch, where people coordinate the work for this day;
  • people working on their selected tasks over the day, alone, in pairs, in groups;
  • a progress report at the next meeting to summarize and document the results.

The first real day of the sprint will be when at least 2 participants are there to meet after breakfast :)

Infrastructure

Infrastructure-wise the "Rolling Sprint" doesn't need a dedicated room, just some place to sit for the morning meetings and space for individual work.

Place and time for the meetings will be announced later.

Agenda

Work items from pkg-perl OpenTasks, and unfinished tasks from the Debian Perl Group Sprint in Zurich.
