The first OpenHatch sprint will take place at Clover Harvard Square on 
Sunday, November 13, 2011.

The goals of the event are to move the OpenHatch website code forward. 
That could mean simplifying it (like jslootbeek has been working on, using 
django-haystack more thoroughly), or making the new-contributor 
documentation better (which Deb has expressed interest in doing), or 
coding up missing bits of functionality, or making small but important 
fixes. It also includes checking in on other prospective contributors that 
might have fallen through the cracks.

WHERE: Clover Harvard,
        7 Holyoke St, near Harvard on the Red Line

WHEN:  Sun Nov 13, 5PM - 10:00 PM

POWER: There are power sockets in the upstairs part of Clover. I will get

WIFI:  Harvard's wifi has a strong signal, in case you have access.

        I will be providing a wifi network for attendees to use. It will

        of which are quite decent.

WHO:   You, if you want to help contribute to the goals!

The more you can say about what you want to work on, and what sort of
