The dates for the March sprint are not established yet, but it's looking
like the week of 13th or the 20th.

Gregg mentioned getting Bay area folks together along with Allen Day if he
can make it. Nothing concrete has been planned though. Try to keep your
calendar clear for that week as much as possible (feb 6-11).

Andrew is planning to commit changes to the retrieval spec a week or so
before the code sprint, so it may make sense to hold off on your DAS-related
work right now and focus on other projects so that you will have a clear
schedule during the sprint.

After Andrew commits spec change later this month, updates will be
necessary. Also, it's not currently a complete implementation.

No, http://netaffxdas.affymetrix.com

The MAGE workshop won't be very large, since it's specifically just for
development of the next version of it. It's possible there could be some
people/organizations coming out for that who have DAS interests as well and
might consider attending the sprint. I'll inquire.
