Hac 2007 II
Please add yourself to this list if you are potentially interested in being part of a Hackathon colocated with Haskell Workshop and ICFP 2007 (i.e. in Freiburg, Germany, around the end of September/beginning of October).
Note that it is not necessary to register for ICFP, or any of the associated conferences, if you only want to go to the Hackathon. The Hackathon itself will be free, but you will obviously have to pay for travel, accommodation, food, etc.

Potential topics for a group hack
Add ideas here for which you think hacking together as a group (rather than individually) would be beneficial.
- Building tests that give 100% code coverage for package base.
- Lots of Cabal hacking still to be done
- Bindings for <your favourite C library>
- Haskell library for <your favourite task>
- bytestring 1.0
- bit layer on Data.Binary 1.0
- bytestring parsec
- combine strictcheck and quickcheck once and for all
