Great idea!... i started to consider it seriously for our local edition.
wpd2010 moves forward, great, great.

If i'm not wrong, last year Dylan Jay suggested something like that and
i argued against this idea. After reading your mail and thinking about
it again, i believe, i made a mistake.
World Plone Day is about promoting plone and as Jon Stahl told me once
'We're all figuring it out [how to do it] as we go.'(*) so, if you
believe that could work out, you should *Just do it*.
Organizing a sprint requires extra work, for example contacting core
developers or convincing the plone-tuneup-dream-team joining us,
managing tasks, code and i believe all these tasks are out of my
possibilities, i believe we could start moving forward defining a
champion for it.
>> What do you think about this?
Yes, what do you think ? :D
(*) the sentence is out of the original scope, anyway, I personally
proved it works on other scopes as well :D
