Hi all,

The Media Text Hack crew from New Zealand has handily produced a
'hackpack'. As Clint noted, this includes a useful 'cookbook' for OER
booksprints, outlining some of the projects successes and failures, as well
as some other resources they produced after the event:

Incidentally, we (CCANZ) also in the very early stages of planning some
resource sprints for high school teachers, scheduled for April next year.
The intended outputs won't be a book, so much as a series of discrete
resources, though we'll probably face many of the same challenges.

In preparation, I've put together a task-list of sorts. Not sure if this is
useful, Werner, though feel free to copy, critique and share (though note
that we haven't officially announced the project yet):
