The ICFP gives us 72 hours to complete the task, so if you can stay awake
through the weekend is a plus ;) Seriously we need: capability to stay
online through the weekend, desire to help improve D's status, hacking
skills (i.e. ability to bang code fast, do quick prototyping, debug like a
banshee and some optimizing skills for the last hours before shipping) and
general programming knowledge (e.g. able to learn new things and implement
them). Welcome to the team, so far it's me, you and Burton Radons.

I may also try to help out, but the problem is my beloved "sister" has got a
birthday on that saturday... besides, i'm not a very fast hacker... But else i
would try to help someway, esp. in the beginning. I want to see whether i can
gain some more people for that. So far i meet people, who are either Java fans,
or C++ fans, and are too hard to gain for anything else.

   Well if you only need to leave for something like 2 to 6 hours then it's
ok. But if you need more time (e.g. travel time, organize the party, buy
gifts) it may compromise the tight schedule. If we are around the globe,
we'll have different timezones to deal with and maybe the party time will
fall in some kind of covered hole (e.g. either other people will be
available or everyone is sleeping). I don't know. If you think you can
handle this you're welcome.

Do you want to create an open CVS space on OpenD.org ?

If yes, the contest would be a good starting point.
If no, I'd post the access data for my prowiki2.com CVS.

I think this can be done here in a special thread.

I'd also suggest (wiki) collaboration for
  - overall and individual task lists 
  - overall design and documentation

Check this:

Helmut seems eager enough, how about the OpenD gang?

I think we should decide right now, so that we have
enought time to set it up, have everyone train using
the wiki and cvs, and we also need the IRC channel
right now.

If we have access to a private server, then we can
run a "private IRC", otherwise we can use any public
IRC server, but then we need a bot to restrict everyone
else from crowding the channel.

The "private" would be easier, all we need is to download
and start an IRC server somewhere. The privacy would be from
nobody else knowing about the server or its address. Quick,
effortless and easy.  Servers for both Windows and Linux can
be downloaded from a million places.

Using IRC makes everyone feel they are talking in the same
room, which is essential here.

Yes, all that you hang on the wall in the programmers'
room should be on the wiki.

One doesn't need any bot.

There have been 2 #D channels on different open IRC servers, and they 
had been announced here. 1 client parked, no person alive there. Simply 
noone is interested.

Making the cannel invisible or requiering an invitation would be OK, any 
newcomer would simply need to knock on some existing member to get invited.

I stand corrected. 

In this particular case, we are fighting against the others.
Our ICFP 2003 group has to keep all its internal communication 
secret from the other groups, and that's why we need a secure channe.
If this can be done without a bot, the better. (I'm too old to be
an expert on IRC. :-(

Overall, I think we do not yet have a sufficient mass to sustain
an IRC channel on general D issues with on-going, round the clock
communication. But the time will come. And, since we are well 
scattered globally, the future IRC channel may even be more 
evenly loaded than if it were a US-only channel.
