OSAF plans events for PyCon 2004

PyCon 2004, March 24-26, 2004 in Washington, D.C., is a 
community-oriented conference targeting developers (both those using 
Python and those working on the Python project). It provides 
opportunities to learn about significant advances in the Python 
development community, to participate in a programming sprint with some 
of the leading minds in the Open Source community, and to meet fellow 
developers from around the world. The organizers work to make the 
conference affordable and accessible to all.

*Mitch Kapor to give keynote address*
Mitch, founder of the Open Source Application Foundation, will be the 
keynote speaker for the conference.

*Chandler Sprint*
OSAF will be running a Sprint from Mar 20-23 prior to the PyCon 2004 
conference.  The topics for the sprint will focus on the Chandler 
repository.  At the moment, these include repository dump/restore 
functionality, and remote repository sharing using WebDAV. 

Andi Vajda and Ted Leung will the coaches for the sprints, and will be 
doing brief tutorials for people unfamiliar with the Chandler 
repository.  We want to use the sprint to involve more people in the 
Chandler development process as well as accomplish some tasks that will 
be useful for Chandler.

If you are interested in participating in the sprint, please add your 
self to the ChandlerSprint page:">
