A small number of core/active/regular Buildroot developers from Europe
will be gathering during a 3-day week-end from Mar 31 to April 2 for a
Buildroot hackathon.

Arnout Vandecappelle, Yann E. Morin, Peter Korsgaard, Romain Naour,
Maxime Hadjinlian and myself will participate to this event. We will be
physically meeting in Paris, hosted by La Maison from Scaleway [1], who
is generously offering the meeting space and accommodation.

For logistics reasons, this event is not open to everyone like the
FOSDEM and ELCE meetings are. However, we wanted to announce it
publicly nonetheless so that:

 *) People know that there will most likely be lots of Buildroot
    activity during this week-end, especially reviewing and merging
    patches, and reducing the patchwork backlog.

 *) Interested people may want to make themselves available on IRC
    during this week-end (or part of the week-end) to participate to
    the effort. Indeed, it would definitely be useful to have more
    participants looking at pending patches, taking over some of the
    patches that need further tweaks, etc.

 *) Some people may be interested in sending a new iteration of their
    patch series before this week-end, so that we can take the
    opportunity of this meeting to discuss and merge
    large/controversial/complicated changes.

If you have any question on how to participate remotely, do not
hesitate to ask!

Best regards,

Thomas Petazzoni, CTO, Bootlin (formerly Free Electrons)
Embedded Linux and Kernel engineering
