Django sprint

Published: November 26, 2007. Filed under: Django.

I’ve got a couple articles brewing in the back of my head to finish out the month (and not a bad month, even with the unexpected break last weekend), but rather than write one of them tonight I’d like to pause and remind everyone that this Saturday — December 1 — is a major sprint day for Django. We’re hoping to make quite a bit of progress on some as-yet-unfinished features which need to land before Django 1.0 (the last sprint was an amazing leap forward, and it’d be nice to do that again), but we’re going to need help from anyone who can volunteer time and effort.

Even if you’re not writing code, there are plenty of things you can do — help organize tickets, test proposed patches, etc. — and any and all help will be greatly appreciated. Take a look at the official wiki page for the sprint, feel free to add yourself to the list of participants, and come hang out on IRC, in the #django and #django-sprint channels on freenode.

As I’ve done with previous sprints, I plan to concentrate on documentation: there are plenty of things which can be added or cleaned up, and if there’s something in particular you’d like to see docs for, let me know (though keep in mind that some things are deliberately undocumented at this point; for example, some of Django’s internal APIs aren’t officially stable yet, and won’t be officially documented until they are).

More in-depth Django posts will resume tomorrow and run to the end of the week, and then on Saturday: we sprint :)
