The fifth FLOSS Usability Sprint will be held on November 2-4, 2007 at
Google <> in Mountain View, California. At the sprint,
open source developers, usability practitioners, project managers, and users
will gather to discuss methodologies for improving the usability of
Free/Libre/Open Source Software (FLOSS) and to apply those processes towards
specific projects. The goal is two-fold: To improve the usability of the
participating projects, and to
shared understanding and ongoing collaboration between the usability
and open source communities.

This will be our fifth sprint, after throwing successful sprints in
August <> 2005, October
and March 2007 <>. This
upcoming sprint will have the added bonus of being the first organized by
the community itself! As always, our focus will be on working with a
fantastic set of free (libre) / open source (FLOSS) software projects,
focusing especially on users from nonprofit organizations. This year, we'll
also spend some time organizing our first remote usability sprint.

If you are a usability practitioner, FLOSS developer, or user and are
