Anyone interested in doing a LA code sprint to work on these issues to help get Drupal 7 to beta state?
Ninjitsu Web could provide pizza or something, and help train new developers in the basics of patching, reviewing, and navigating the issue queue, and get set-up with the tools for doing so.
We'd need someone else to provide a location suitable for a room full of laptops, and probably another coordinator to help the experienced dev's collaborate & providing general traffic control.
I'm thinking Saturday, June 12 might be an ideal date.
Update: we've combined the code sprint with a git bootcamp! "Git with Drupal 7" is on June 12th in Marina del Rey and details can be found at http://groups.drupal.org/node/71473
