I have no idea how it will work -- I'm not even sure if there is a
plan yet. The only thing I heard was that mornings were for talks and
afternoons/evenings were for coding. I imagine it'll be pretty informal
with the people who are into the projects doing most of the
coding. You'd probably have to ask Ewan or someone in the know about
the plans, but I don't even know if anything is set yet.

You might want to ask about how many computers they'll have before
planning it -- there can only be a finite number of computers (hey,
Suns are expensive you know!), so I don't know they'll be split up or
whatever. Just something to think about.

Sounds fun, although with all of those alternating upper and lowercase 
letters, people might think you're talking about some new LaTeX
project :-).
