In a few week, pylint will be 10 years old (0.1 released on may 19 2003!). At this occasion, I would like to release a 1.0. Well, not exactly at that date, but not too long after would be great. Also, I think it would be a good time to have a few days sprint to work a bit on this 1.0 but also to meet all together and talk about pylint status and future, as more and more contributions come from outside Logilab (actually mostly Google, which employs Torsten and Martin, the most active contributors recently).

The first thing to do is to decide a date and place. Having discussed a bit with Torsten about that, it seems reasonable to target a sprint during june or july. Due to personal constraints, I would like to host this sprint in Logilab's Toulouse office.

So, who would like to jump in and sprint to make pylint even better? I've created a doodle so every one interested may tell his preferences:

Regarding the location, is everybody ok with Toulouse? Other ideas are Paris, or Florence around EuroPython, or... <add your proposition here>.

We'll talk about the sprint topics later, but there are plenty of exciting ideas around there.

Please, answer quickly so we can move on. And I hope to see you all there!
