OK. Wow, I wasn't expecting to be the only US person on the list!
I have to confess something: I said "yes" because it sounds interesting,
but I can't read that link explaining the details because I'm not part of
the Google group. I sent in a request to join the group on the assumption
it would be OKed in short order, but after a week it still hasn't been
approved. In other words: I have almost no idea what to expect or what
sort of preparation I should do (other than buying a new laptop drive
so I have a portable again :-) ).
All I have right now is the Google SoC FAQ entry:
Mentor Summit at Google: Representatives from each successfully
participating organization are invited to Google to greet,
collaborate and code. Our mission for the weekend: make the program
even better, have fun and make new friends.
Sounds great, but I bet there's more I need to know. Can anyone send
me a copy of the summit announcement in private email?
