We had a great UI hackathon today, focusing on attachments usability and 
usefulness with half a dozen to a dozen developers and users.

During the course of the day, we checked in ghendricks' BMP->PNG 
autoconverter and my tabs refactoring (a prerequisite to using tabs to 
improve the navigability of the attachment pages), hashed out how we can 
improve content type handling and implement large comment -> attachment 
conversion, and worked on a number of other issues.

A rough list with some notes and links is available on the hackathon 
wiki scratchpad <>.

I'd love to get feedback about the event to help me improve future 
ones.  For those who attended: Was it helpful?  What worked well?  What 
could have worked better?  For those who didn't, but might: Why not?

I'm also trying to decide when the next (and subsequent) hackathons 
should be held, and what we should focus on.  I can't please everybody, 
but knowing your schedules, availability, and interest will help figure 
out what makes the most sense.  For those interested in participating: 
What day(s) of the week work best?  How often can you attend?  What 
would you like to work on?  Should we stay focused on one area across 
several hackathons or jump to different areas each time?

Thanks again to everyone who participated!  I look forward to your 
feedback and the next hackathon!
