Hi all,

a few months ago, Robert Kern recommended this book:

Producing Open Source Software
How to Run a Successful Free Software Project
By Karl Fogel
http://producingoss.com/

and I've found it to be a very useful collection of tips and ideas regarding 
the running of an OSS project.  A groklaw.net review came out today

http://www.groklaw.net/article.php?story=20060105010817642

which made me think this might be of interest to some in our group.  While I 
think that scipy in general is running great, there are many good ideas in 
that book in terms of things to keep in mind to make the environment around a 
project operate better.

Back to your regularly scheduled namespace discussions :)

Cheers,

f
