Re: Next (winter) docs hackfest?

Hi all

Last year, we had our "winter" hackfest in Norwich, UK, in the week
leading up to FOSDEM. I remember that there was some interest in
proposing new locations, and the venue at Norwich is also available

I think that it would make most sense to do something similar in terms
of timing again, unless someone objects. That would make the hackfest
dates sometime around 24th-29th of January.

I don't think that the Foundation would be able to sponsor the
hackfest, so I would like you all to think about whether you would be
able to attend without sponsorship and where would  the best location
for the hackfest be.

I would like to offer Norwich again, the features are:
- free venue at UEA (University of East Anglia) with reasonable internet
- we can offer at least 8 free sleeping places (possibly more
depending on how cosy you want to get and how many favours we can call
- other accommodation is available for £25-50 (depending on location
and single/double rooms)
- cheapest airport is Stansted, but Norwich is very close
- transport to Heathrow/Gatwick is easy (but a bit pricey)
- it is possible to take the train from western Europe

If anyone else is willing to propose a location, please do so as soon
as possible because cheap flight and train tickets are already being
sold for those dates.


Thanks for taking the lead on organizing this, and thanks for being
upfront on the probable lack of sponsorship. I do not think that I'd be
able to attend the hackfest, but can plan for post-work Central time
hacking to go along with your efforts on the other side of the pond.
