TOSprint or not to sprint?

TOSprint Paris 2016

Report of a week of sprint

TOSprint in Paris has just ended (wiki page).

What a week!

First of all I want to warmfully thank the sponsors, especially Olivier Courtin from Oslandia for the organization, and Mozilla France for hosting us.

What is TOSprint?

Once a year a bunch of hackers from projects under OsGeo umbrella, meet in a face to face sprint.
This year it happenned in Paris with great number of participants (52).

There was globally five big groups, and if each community was running its own schedule,
there was a lot of cross echanges too.

My main objective, except being enough luckly to be a sponsor, was to go there and be in direct contact with upstream.

This can help a lot to improve packages, and create new ones.

Moreover, as one of my openSUSE’s Application:Geo peer maintainer, Angelos Kalkas was also participating, we decided to make somes changes, and improve the situation of the repository.
