=== 2018 ===
** 0.93 oriented hackfest [Tavmjong] [[HackfestGtk3]] [[Hackfest_0.93]]
 
*** Location and time highly TBD
 
*** Tav will brainstorm on wiki about what it might look like
 
** SCALE oriented event [scislac]
 
*** Maybe could include class on contributing/hacking on inkscape (JonCruz suggestion)
 
** Hackfest organizational tips
 
*** Process: Have folks propose options, and then trade off cost projections and benefits
 
*** Try to organize group lodging (same hotel, rented/air-bnb house, http://www.linuxhotel.de/community.en.html, etc.)
 
*** Send a scout ahead of time to help avoid slummy accommodations
 
*** Catered lunches help keep everyone focused (we're already reimbursing on lunches, so cost differential isn't huge, and it saves hassle all around)
 
*** Boots on the ground at a location can be a huge help if plans go awry
 
*** Prefer locations with local inkscape community on the ground
