This summit is still in the pipelines, all that is confirmed so far is that it will be 10/05/2008 (that's May, not October - sorry US folks) in "London." Vague? Nah ;) More details to come soon!
As of 6th May, 2008 the go-ahead has been given for this to occur at the Last.fm Offices in London. The nearest tube stop is Old Street, and yes, there is a ballpool.
More details on getting to the office can be found here.

Here are some of the topics that we should discuss at the summit -- these topics are a must:
- Google Summer of Code -- All three students and two mentors will be present.
- MusicBrainz server development over the summer. Perl, python, Template::Toolkit
- Picard and Alexander's SoC project to improve usability
- Niklas Berglund's Music Collection project for SoC
- Next Generation Schema (NGS) and how that is impacted by the summer coding sprint
- The BBC's efforts to help MusicBrainz with NGS.
If you would like to propose more things to be added, please do so below:
- Moving to mod_perl 2, but I suspect that's covered by "server development", above - DaveEvans
