Hi Jeff,

I just wanted to mention the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team is
planning a hackweek for the weekdays in between (9th-13th of
September)(1) .

We are still in the early planning stages. I think it would be a great
opportunity for developers, GIS specialists, documentation writers or
others to come together and work on solutions for humanitarian
response and disaster preparedness.
