For this purpose Patrick and me will meet in Germany (near Osnabrück again) for these two days and work intensively on .8 (and maybe on .9 too). One slot is still available, if someone is interested in joining us, please contact me for details. Maybe Jorn can make a short stop when coming back from his holidays :-).
We did this several times before when working on pncommerce and out of our experience we know that such weekends are really productive and a valuable source for creativity.
For those who want to support this we will either create a Skype conference or an open IRC chat (not sure yet which one will make it), this will announced on time. So we can coordinate our efforts with those of other developers and you, the user.
Now is the time to check out .8 and see what is not working as expected. You can either add bugs on NOC as usual or, if you are not sure, tell us about this in the chat.
See you (or read you) on Oct. 6th/7th.
