Hmmm. This I've never seen. I suggest to do a fresh check-out
and try again. My build works quite nicely, even after a new
check-out of slpdev/src/2.3/sprint today.

(Un)fortunately I didn't prepare any persistent material
but the video recordings that Lutz has captured. I'm really
curious to watch this stuff, later. We will most probably
create some downloadable digests of various sessions
which might be tutorial-like.

I have to say that I'm incredibly impressed of how much
productive this sprint already was after just three out
of five days.

I'd like to have the next sprint ASAP -- chris :-)
