IETF85 Code Sprint
The IETF 85 Code Sprint in Atlanta will focus on enhancements to the new tracker, and rewriting code and templates that use the old models through the shim layer to instead use the new models.
The Sprint will be run according to the IETFSprintHowto.
If you plan to participate, please sign up on the IETF85SprintSignUp page.
This sprint will take place from 9:30 to 18:00 in Room 205-207. The coding will end 18:00 on the dot, with dinner and follow-up afterwards.
We have the mailing list "firstname.lastname@example.org" to help with coordination and for use during the event. Please make sure you're subscribed before the event starts. More info on the list is available at https://www.ietf.org/mailman/listinfo/codesprints.
There is also a jabber room at email@example.com.
During the sprint, please update the two tables below; this helps both with coordination and with getting the code merged, released, and deployed :-)
See you in Atlanta!
This sprint's plan
- Primary focus: Scratch your itch; add the tracker feature you miss.
- Secondary: Code and template rewrite and refactoring to use the new database schema instead of the old one through the shim layer.
Some areas that could use attention:
- Make document search more flexible (add more complex conditions to advanced search)
- Focus on the liaison management tools and reduce the large number of defects/enhancements listed there
- Adjust the code/UI to handle managing shepherds/writeups for individual submission documents
Please fill in the following table when you've picked a task for the sprint. It's quite all right to pick and complete multiple tasks :-)

Wishlist (for this sprint or future sprints)
- A working knowledge of python and/or web design
- Learn the basic concepts of Django 1.1, e.g., work through the excellent tutorial.
- Review the new database schema and models (see http://merlot.tools.ietf.org/src/db/new/redesign)
- Bring a laptop with Python (2.5/2.6), Subversion and (optionally) Mysql (4.x is ok, 5.x is better) installed, and be ready to check out a branch of the IETF web site from the tools svn server. (Some hints on preparing mac laptops are at MacSetup)
