Hackfest: Rennes, France


A hackfest! We will work on Inkscape bugs, new features, and packaging as well as website issues; in fact anything that can benefit from developers and users being physically in the same space.

Hackfest Dinner

An informal dinner will be held on ?. Lot of choice of restaurant : japonese, breton, italian, marocco. All are very good. Maybe is depending on the number. Japonese restaurant is quite little and the marocco is bigger and also very good. The breton are plenty but the good one have to be booked.
