The sprint yesterday went quite well.  He's a quick peek at what everyone was
up to:

  * Drake Smith and Itamar Shtull-Trauring spent time fixing problems with our
    documentation and addressing a potential problem with the __str__ of

  * Dave Sturgis worked on adding frame-drop notification to LoopingCall

  * Thomas Hervé contributed remotely with code for the Conch "session"
    branch and tests for a regression fix in Conch's ssh agent support

  * Michael Hudson also participated remotely, continuing to work towards
    support for multiple byte ranges in HTTP range requests in the Twisted
    Web server

  * Glyph Lefkowitz finished the removal of a lot of decrepit gtk1-based
    application code, reviewed much of the other work done at the sprint,
    and triaged a bunch of tickets.

  * Chris Armstrong added an API to the new HTTP client currently under
    development to allow applications to interrupt it and disconnect at
    arbitrary times.  He also paired with me to fix a memory leak triggered
    by trial's --until-failure option.

  * I also worked on some Conch fixes, reviewed some code, and triaged
    some tickets.

Thanks to Divmod and the TSF sponsors who picked up lunch for all the
