# Add a basic implementation that is just a bean representation without operations. We could finally start to add JUnit tests then.
+
* Set guidelines in place for build
# Add GML parsers/exporters. I understood that one may want to keep this aspect out of the repository, but I don't see how we could test the difficulties in representing GML geometries (e.g external xlinks) without this. It also would make setting up geometries for testing much easier. Maybe we could keep the GML parsing/exporting isolated from the rest of the code.

** Documentation guidelines
# Of course we would take on the operations subject again, when we find consensus here.

Code Sprint - what's that?

A code sprint is usually organized by a group that is using an open source project and wants to see something done. They fly the developers to a single location and feed them for a couple of days with the necessities of the hacking life (internet, caffeine, electricity). The communication that happens from face to face hacking usually lasts the project for a year or more. You see this a lot in projects like Drupal etc...

Venue

For map and more details see File:FOSS4G 2009 Code Sprint Information.pdf

Peter Johnson Building (Building 6)
Faculty of Design, Architecture & Building 
702-730 Harris Street, 
Ultimo, NSW 2007.

More than 80 attendees are expected!

Motivation and Direction

A day, a code base, and your imagination?

Projects can use the time and venue for organizational discussions, development roadmaps, and group resolution of thorny issues in their code bases.

Is this your First Sprint? Here is some background information to get you started:
