Great idea!... i started to consider it seriously for our local edition.

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
