2. Arrival Logistics

We are going to be at 501 Ellis Street, Mountain View, CA. We are going to be in the north west corner of the building. The entrance is on the west side of the building. The doors will probably be locked, but we'll check frequently in the morning if anyone is waiting. Otherwise just ping us (there's an open GoogleGuest wifi), for example martinvonz@google.com on hangouts or 650-814-8116. Worst case, knock on the windows :-)

There is plenty of parking on the south side of the building.

The best light rail stop is Middlefield, which is a 7-minute walk from the office.

3. Attendance

Everyone is welcome from core developer 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.

6. Possible Topics

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

6.1. Steering Committee and Donations

We really need a clear (and fast) picture here. It's been frustrating that we (Bitbucket) have money to donate but nobody seems to know what to do.

6.2. friendlyhg

6.3. Python 3

6.4. SHA-1 Replacement

6.5. TLS Libraries

6.6. Summer of Code

6.7. Interaction between freeze and running from @

6.8. Corruption on Windows

6.9. Evolution

6.10. Enhanced repoview

6.11. Versioning Scheme

Mercurial version numbers don't really mean anything. Can we switch to a date-based versioning scheme so when people see the version "number" in command output they have an idea how old their Mercurial client is?

6.12. Local Storage Optimizations

Facebook has been experimenting with some form of pack files. Indygreg has ideas for improving revlogs. There's also PackedRepoPlan. Jun has ideas for improving changelog storage/indexing, linkrev storage, etc. There is also a desire to facilitate reader locks.

Let's have a discussion about the future of local storage.

6.13. Configuration Consolidation

6.14. Topic 1
