o/ Sagi - fwiw I really like the idea - like a remote project gathering...
especially having an open bluejeans session (I'd still do that even if an
irc chan is the preferred medium for the hackathon in the end) and I also
like the topic.

Personally I will find it hard to block-book a day (for example) to work on
this particular thing - depending on where we are in the cycle/current BZ
or customer cases etc etc and that is the main reason I wouldn't be able to
participate - at least not for the whole thing, but would at least try to
track it  (Even if I could block book a day it would probably be hard to
match the day that other folks can do it). I guess if you've gone to the
trouble of filing the bugs/blueprints and the 'deployment-time' tag as
suggested by Emilien then in in the worst case this effort can proceed in
the 'usual' way (gerrit,mailing list etc).
