uhuh, for the 'hackathon' this official team is just all of us....
so pls comment

to be clear

morning focus is  >> strategic 'war-room' planning  <<
(talk, discuss, decide)
   1/ if you have time, maybe prepare your 10' talk on the wiki itself:

*it will allow for those not attending to add their suggestions as well*

(it doesn't need to be more then a list of bullets I guess)
(I am assuming that the 'blocks' topic will need more then one session 
of 10' :-) any suggestion/estimate would be nice)

   2/ try to abuse the afternoon-work by concluding towards concrete 
things that need to be done (even if the attending group should still 
decide 'how', it would be great to have a list upfront of 'what')

afternoon focus is   >> factual 'commando' hacking  <<
   1/ declare yourself as possible commando-leader for a certain 
hacking-area, on monday we can see how those possible groups get 
organized eventually (some chaos allowed)

   2/ bring your wifi cards, those without one will be happy to do some 
pair programming on your station :-)

we currently have the idea of having a large bord with post-it notes 
holding all the issues to be hacked so we can physically check them off
(other ideas welcome)

the benefit of this change IMHO is that more topics can get discussed by 
all, and since there is more people attending then originally expected, 
  we can now parallellize the hacking-time rather then sequence it...
