The bulk of the documentation effort now revolves around this wiki.
OSM is offering pizza and soda for pre-registered groups. We aren’t setting a specific maximum, but please don’t go crazy with it. Get enough so there’s plenty for everyone, but not a week’s worth of pizza and soda leftovers for everyone. Contact Andrea Tarr (email@example.com) before the event to register and get details.
If you want to get people together and have a venue to share, please add it below. Share as much as possible details like exact location, url for more information about the venue, ways to register, date and time the venue is available etc.
If you set up a location please send contact information to Andy Tarr (firstname.lastname@example.org). Feel free to contact her with any questions.

Q: Where is the SVN for Joomla?
Q: Which one is 2.5?
A: It is the main trunk
Q: Why does it still say 1.7.3?
A: The version number hasn't been changed yet.
Q: Any known issues with JForge and Chrome on Windows?
A: It have been seen that browsing the JForge tracker, Chrome may ask for a missing plugin (windows media player). No workaround for this is yet known.
Thanks to everyone who participanted in the Joomla! Pizza, Bugs and Fun this past weekend. Over 60 people worldwide tested, coded/fixed and documented new features and issues in Joomla! 2.5, helping to get it ready for release. Some of the countries represented were the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Denmark, The Netherlands, Israel, the United States, Canada, Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Australia, Malaysia, South Africa, Algeria and India. Over half of the people participating were not in the Joomla Bug Squad so we had a lot of new volunteers. It was great to see so many people come out to help.
These are the statistics from the Joomla CMS Issue Tracker and Joomla CMS Feature Tracker for the period. Thanks must also go out to the people not on these charts including those who did documentation, those who tested but didn't have a login to the trackers and those giving support.
