I agree with all of those aims. However i propose a different
schedule so that we fit in better with the ApacheCon events,
especially the Welcoming Reception and the official Birds of a
Feather (BoF) sessions.

Event: Apache Committers Hackathon

Date: Tuesday

Location: ApacheCon

Topics: Meet other committers. Open discussion. Bug fixing.

Audience: Committers only.

Event: Apache Forrest project workshop

Date: Tuesday 19:00 until whenever.

Location: The HfT room.

Topics: Views, XHTML internal format, project planning.

Audience: Anyone is welcome, but discussions will be technical
and will assume knowledge of Forrest. We will certainly answer
questions to ensure that people understand background. However
the main aim is an intensive project design session.

Event: Apache Forrest get together

Date: Wednesday 20:00 until whenever

Location: The HfT room.

Topics: Open discussions.

Audience: Anyone.

Event: Apache Forrest Birds of a Feather (BoF) session

Date: Thursday 20:00 until 21:00

Location: ApacheCon

Topics: Open discussions.

Audience: Conference attendees.
