That's a few. I'll be there for a one day sprint if I can schedule it
before I start work. Amy also sounds interested.
Anyone else up for a day of coding/Plone development with your fellow

Yes, I was discussing with Martin Aspeli (optilude) on #plone last weekend. I
couldn't tell whether certain views were supposed to show only published PHC
content, all visible content, etc. One reason I'd like a coordinated Sprint
is so that I can get limi, optilude, and maybe some others on the plone-docs
team to agree on what PHC is supposed to do. That way, we could go into a
Sprint knowing what behavior we need to verify, unit test, and fix if broken.

I'll jump on #plone to see what the available of the decision makers is.

Hey, if we could get that same room, that would be excellent.

+1 on the same room. With Plone development now, I need to pair program. I
know where to look now, but I don't know *anything* off the top of my head.
While one person tests PHC, looks at ZPTs, and browses source code, the other
could be looking at fundamental APIs. For example, while I was looking at
the code yesterday, I wanted to add a test that would transition documents
through workflow. Hm...how the heck do I do that via the Python API?
I think that we'd move much faster in pairs so that one can test a guess
through the web (two browers open, add a howto, now view the All Howtos page
as another user in another browser, does the in-progress howto show up?)
while the other person can look up the API (how are we going to add a unit
test that creates a howto, makes some calls as users with varying roles, and
transitions the content through various workflow states).
> Thanks again for having so much interest in this.
As I've mentioned before, there's one volunteer/non-profit project where I
think that Plone would be a perfect fit. For that project, we'd doing a
MySite style of Product. Unit testing with PHC forces me to learn a lot of
the APIs that I'll need to be able to use if I ever get back to that
