You may not want to wait that long, but having a hackfest at Pycon 2011 in
Atlanta in March would be a good idea.  The sprints are free to attend, and
well-supported by the PSF and its sponsors.  Of course, individual members
have to arrange their own travel, room and board, but even there, the PSF does
provide some limited sponsorship for individuals.

If it's in the USA, schedule permitting, I would try to attend.

Definitely!  Once a location, time frame, and rough budget is established I'd
be happy to try to reach out to the PSF board to see if they can sponsor part
of it.
