[Numpy-discussion] www.numpy.org home page

For people interested in the www.numpy.org home page:

Jon Turner has officially transferred the www.numpy.org domain to NumFOCUS.      Thank you, Jon for this donation and for being a care-taker of the domain-name.   We have setup the domain registration to point to numpy.github.com and I've changed the CNAME in that repostiory to www.numpy.org

I've sent an email to have the numpy.scipy.org page to redirect to www.numpy.org.  

The NumPy home page can still be edited in this repository:  git@github.com:numpy/numpy.org.git.   Pull requests are always welcome --- especially pull requests that improve the look and feel of the web-page. 

Two of the content changes that we need to make a decision about is 

	1) whether or not to put links to books published (Packt publishing for example has offered a higher percentage of their revenues if we put a prominent link on www.numpy.org) 
	2) whether or not to accept "Sponsored by" links on the home page for donations to the project (e.g. Continuum Analytics has sponsored Ondrej release management, other companies have sponsored pull requests, other companies may want to provide donations and we would want to recognize their contributions to the numpy project). 

These decisions should be made by the NumPy community which in my mind are interested people on this list.   Who is interested in this kind of discussion?  

We could have these discussions on this list or on the numfocus@googlegroups.com list and keep this list completely technical (which I prefer, but I will do whatever the consensus is).  

Best regards,

-Travis
