1. Date and location

The sprint will take place Friday March 18, 2016 to Sunday March 20 at Mozilla's San Francisco office.

2 Harrison St. San Francisco, CA 94105

The entrance is under a big Mozilla sign along Embarcadero Blvd facing the water and the bay bridge.

Please arrive no earlier than 0900 PDT on Friday. Official start time is no later than 1000.

Arriving via public transit or walking is highly preferred. There is a N and T light rail stop in front of the office. MUNI costs $2.25/ride (exact change).

If you drive, there is an underground garage in the adjacent building (entrance on Folsom St.). Paid street parking with meters is available, but you are limited to a few hours. The parking meters are disabled on Sundays and parking should not be a problem in the neighborhood.

Everyone is welcome from core to aspiring contributor. Attending a Mercurial sprint is usually a good way to kickstart your contributions are you'll get a large amount of help available for 3 days.

Important things we want to discuss: (add your own)

5.1. User Interface and Experience

5.2. New Features and Improvements

5.3. Data Format and Performance

5.5. Persistent Bugs

5.6. Discussion with remote people

Please update these sections with constraint and time proposal.

The sprint is happening California time, currently UTC-7. from Friday to Sunday 10h → 18h for sure. I don't expect Friday morning to be much schedulable.

There have been a lot of good progress and interrest around this.

Remote attendee: - Mathias de Maré, Belgium, Belgium (UTC+1)

5.6.2. Discussion around PyPy and CFFI

Facebook is contracting people to get an idea of what it would take to run Mercurial on Pypy. The most fuzzy part if the handling of C code using CFFI

Remote attendee: - Maciej Fijalkowski, South Africa (UTC+2)

5.6.3. Discussion around Mercurial Performance tracking

Facebook is also contracting people to get a proper performance tracking suite for Mercurial so that we can start tracking performance change overtime. I expect people to have opinions and idea around this.

Remote attendee: - David Douard, France (UTC+1) - Philippe Pepiot, France (UTC+1)
