I agree with all of those.

While discussing code and ideas with Ivan/Greg I've learned new things
about serf and ra_serf, so achieved at least one of my goals.

Maybe you guys did this on Saturday when I already left, but I'd like
to propose for next hackathon that we sit together for an hour or so
to talk about what everybody is doing in Subversion and what they are
planning to do during the hackathon and after that. If there's need or
an opportunity to help with some coding...

This can bring everyone up to speed quickly on the progress of 1.7
development, and be a kickstart for the hackathon.

And, Berlin is great location, even the parts outside the elego office! :)
