The following people have been paired up for crashing:

We still need spaces for Outsidecontext, FauxFaux, dmppanda, kuno.

Agenda items

Here are some of the topics that we should discuss at the summit -- these topics are a must:

  1.  !Google Summer of Code -- All three students and two mentors will be present.
  2. MusicBrainz server development over the summer. Perl, python, Template::Toolkit
  3. Picard and Alexander's SoC project to improve usability
  4. Niklas Berglund's Music Collection project for SoC
  5. Next Generation Schema (NGS) and how that is impacted by the summer coding sprint
  6. The BBC's efforts to help MusicBrainz with NGS.

If you would like to propose more things to be added, please do so below:

  1. Moving to mod_perl 2, but I suspect that's covered by "server development", above - DaveEvans
  2. [ your idea here ]
