I like the idea of a hacking session, however finding a common project
to work on, seems hard.  It is likely to fall into a one person hacking
session while the others are trying to figure out the basics without
going anywhere.

What would interest me most, would be to exchange on things that can be
difficult to explain on IRC or a mailing list.  What I have in mind are
things like:

- Guile hacking tips
- Subsystems code Analysis (build systems, importers, linter, ...)
- Presentation of tools related to Guix (Autotools, Emacs, Graphviz, QEMU, ...)

What do people think?
