21Attendees
22========
23
24We expect around six or seven people (previous hackathons hosted by
25CTPUG have ranged in attendance from four to ten).

27Goal
28====
29
30Porting Genshi to Python 3.  The initial aim is to create a version of
31Genshi that works correctly on both 2.x and 3.x. If we hit problems
32we'll settle for a version that works under 2.x and can work under 3.x
33after running 2to3.
34
35Genshi has a C extension to optimize performance but it includes
36Python implementations as a fallback so we probably won't attempt to
37port the C extension initially. If there are enough people we'll
38create a sub-sprint to focus on porting the C code, otherwise we'll
39tackle it later on if we're feeling adventurous.
40
41Budget
42======
43
44$100
45
46Some sort of merchandise with a Python logo to give participants. The
47current favourite among CTPUG members seems to be coffee mugs.
48Anything left over will go towards beer, pizza and coffee. :D

50Additional Notes
51=============
52
53There is a CTPUG wiki page for the sprint [4] which I'll keep updating
54as plans materialize. Jeroen Ruigrok van der Werven (one of the Genshi
55committers) has volunteered to help us to get our code into Genshi's
56repository once we're done [5].
57
58CTPUG has organized five other sprints in the last two years [6].
