    Ideally I'd like some time to actually hack on the tools. If that's not
    possible, an hour or two to work out a detailed plan would be enough.

    Let's see what Alex thinks.

To be honest, I don’t want to assume we’re going to need all this space when potentially, we may not. Attendance for docs and I18N is low, but that was greatly increased last PTG due to the ability to have remote attendees. But that’s not what’s being discussed here…

I would appreciate the room the grow. I would like to find out, first and foremost, what is our action plan for docs. This is going to be a monstrous effort, and we’re quite possibly going to need space at events like the PTG to hack away and get things going.

So, I know that didn’t overly answer the question right now, but I hope it gives some perspective as to why I’m holding back a bit here. The strawman is appreciated, thanks Thierry. The small room for docs seems feasible. I just hope there will be the ability to spill over and open up the rest of the week to hack.
