[Numpy-discussion] [numfocus] Growing the contributor base of Numpy

I have prepared a preliminary proposal
https://github.com/enthought/davidc-scipy-2013/blob/master/proposal.rst

Roughly, after ensuring everybody knows how to build numpy from
sources in a dev-friendly way, I was thinking about
 - describing the source code tree organization
 - talk about the main data structures (array + dtype), and how they
relate to the python runtime
 - more details about dtype: use basic array operations to describe
the whole mechanism, and how to create a simple one (using wrapping
float128 as an example)

I also intended to give a few tips regarding tools (e.g. how to track
a python call to its core C implementation).

Stéfan Van Der Walt agreed in principle to contribute, but his
participation is still very conditional.
