Properly capitalize CHICKEN on the wiki directory (only first level).

I used the following shell script to change things:

while IFS= read -d $'\0' -r file ; do

sed -i 's/Chicken/CHICKEN/g' "$file"

done < <(find wiki -maxdepth 1 -type f -print0 )

Some files have been manually reverted after that, since some
substitutions don't apply:

  • friedly-chicken (repl banner)
  • survey2011 (Chicken in URI paths)
  • chickenista-guide (Chickenista)

I hope the link canonicalization thing will be on my side.

1== CHICKEN Scheme hacking sprint
2
3On our last meeting at FrOSCon the idea of having another hacking
4sprint (aka CHICKEN weekend) has come up.  I am willing to organize
5logistics for a meetup at Nuremberg, Germany. Since some foreign
6guests might want to do a little sightseeing as well and we are
7already busy in autumn with T-DOSE in Eindhoven, I propose one of the
8first three december weekends.

34=== Who is allowed to join?
35
36This is an open invitation for anyone that wants to help the CHICKEN
37Scheme project improve.
38
39=== What will be provided?
40
41I will organize the venue and come up with a plan to get food and
42entertainment in time without the hassle to reinvent democracy. I
43might be able to come up with some interesting accommodation venues but
44that is still in a planning stage.
45
46=== What will we be doing there?
47
48Hacking on CHICKEN, socialising and having fun of course.  An initial
49proposal for possible topics has been made by Felix (feel free to add your topic!):
50
51* Optimization and refactoring of the core libraries. Peter suggested
52  this once (for a particular case in srfi-1.scm) and I'm sure there
53  can be lots of improvements everywhere. Now, with specialization, it
54  would be worthwhile to have unsafe entry points that typesafe code
55  can specialize into.
56
57* Cleaning up of the mess in {{setup-api}}/{{setup-download}}/{{chicken-install}}.
58
59* Modularization and cleanup of the compiler - simplify knowledge
60  transfer for core tools.
61
62* Should we distribute responsibility for core subsystems to other
63  developers?
64
65* A COMPREHENSIVE test suite, probably (at least partially) machine-
66  generated. That means tests for each and every library function.
67
68* A "battery included" distribution, sort of like the "Haskell Platform",
69  with portable binaries for Windows, Mac and Linux (to make it easy
70  to give it a try, to grab new users by the neck).
71
72* Distributed, turnkey salmonella runs ("Salmonella @ HOME" - Yuck!),
73  or some sort of "testing probe".
74
75* Clarify perspective for future releases. Should there be some
76  "focus"? What is the general opinion of R7RS? Should there be a
77  roadmap?
78
79* Target users? Niche to be filled by CHICKEN? Or should this just
80  be a universal hacking tool?
81
82* Think about the GUI situation.
83
84* The Book.
85
86* Refactor the [[/egg/sdl|SDL]] egg (and possibly some others).
87
88* Fully automate the release build.
89
90* Rewrite the scheduler from scratch.
91
92* Quicklisp like scheme interface to henrietta: see what eggs are available, their versions, compute dependencies etc.
93
94=== What can I do if I am too far away or otherwise unable to come to Nuremberg?
95
96We will also have a close eye on our IRC channel #chicken on freenode,
97so you can join the fun via the internet!
