Thanks so much for doing this.  It looks great.

docs.scipy.org should be the official documentation.  The Moin wiki
documentation served its purpose, but now there is something much
better.

I propose that the 'Documentation' sidebar on http://www.scipy.org/
point to http://docs.scipy.org.  Eventually, I would like to see all
the content from http://www.scipy.org/Documentation move into the
Sphinx-based system (and then we can just delete the Moin page).
Until that happens we can just leave the link on http://docs.scipy.org
to http://www.scipy.org/.

Also I have cross-posted my response to the numpy list, but let's have
this discussion on the scipy developer's list going forward.

Thanks,
