"It's Sunday now in Deventer and, except for Lukas Tvrdy, all
Krita hackers have gone home -- or, in the case of your author,
stayed home. Time for tea and writing a recap of the whole sprint
"Arriving and setting goals
"The first Krita hackers started arriving on Thursday 25th, with
the rest filtering in during the Friday. Thanks to KDE e.V.
sponsorship, six Krita developers (every single one from a
different country) were able to come as well as interaction
designer -- Peter Sikking, of Gimp fame. The seventh Krita hacker
was already in place!
"The Krita team at the meeting: Lukáš, Vera, Sven,
Peter, Dmitry, Boudewijn, Cyrille and Adam. On Friday morning,
disaster struck. A large fuse in front of the hacking house blew
up, leaving the developers without electricity and thus also
without internet access! Funnily enough, the neighbors weren't
affected. The early arrivals went into the church's cellars to
hack, hack and hack until the whole crowd had assembled. Cyrille
Berger has already blogged about what happened."
