If you follow the CiviCRM blog, you've probably seen a few articles about how much fun the sprints are and what a great time everyone has. Maybe you've thought to yourself, "That's not for me. I'm not a PHP programmer or a database fanatic." Well, I'm here to say that you, yes you can come to the sprint - if you don't write code you can help write the user guide. The only prerequisites are enthusiasm about CiviCRM and a willingness to help out (and a laptop). The food is great, the people are fantastic, and you will have fun, I promise.

Today was the first day of the Apeldoorn part of the post-CiviCon sprints. A bit of a chaotic day with people coming in, shopping and lots of logistics.

I am planning to discuss that with Kurund and later Peter McAndrew tomorrow.

As part of the Bristol Civi Sprint a proposed new layout has been suggested for the existing Find and Merge Duplicates page. The page is used to add / edit Duplicate Matching Rules for the individual, organisation and household contact types. This wouldn't involve changes to the way the Merge Rules work but the changes will make the page easier to use and understand.
