Some more information about the hangout. You will need a headphone
otherwise there can be some echoes at the voice chat and you will need
a webcam ;-)

Due some restrictions from Google there can only be a
maximum of 10 people in one hangout, so first come first serve. All the
others will get a notification that the hangout is full. But you can
join if another is leaving the hangout. We have to check how we can
handle this if there are more than 10 devs who try to join. 

I would suggest that every dev who join the hangout is also logged in
at out IRC dev channel.

See you guys next Sunday....
