Software Freedom Day
Any celebration of free software is welcomed. We have two schedualed events for the September 15, 2012 Software Freedom Day hackathon.

Squads will be encouraged to give a few lightning talks on progress throughout the day and compete for votes of "best" bug fix by onlookers.

SuperTux Mega Time Trial
Compete for the fastest time on 5 levels of SuperTux. We'll be using version 0.1.3, aka Milestone 1 or supertux-stable (the package name in newer versions of debian/Ubuntu). It's okay if you have lose a life or a whole set of lifes and have to do a continue, these things just cost you time.
We'll be using the levels from Icy Island in the order they're normally presented.
This event is looking for a volunteer judge to run it and time each competitor. Competitors are welcome to use their own PC but must do so on a projector (lounge or classroom?) for all to see.
Time trials will start at 2pm.
