The problem is lack of help. It would appear that I and Ed Schofield
are being relied on to release SciPy and neither of us has found the
time to do it in the past month. There has been a large influx in the
number of bug-reports and feature requests and I don't think anybody has
been able to keep up.
My feeling is we should just release 0.5.2 now and deal with bug-reports
later. But, usually that means at least getting the tests to pass.
In short, we need a release manager for SciPy. Anybody willing to take
up the task?
