Pauli has been involved too - for last scipy, Nathan has been heavily
involved thanks to his great sparse contributions.

I don't know about those projects workflow, but I can tell you about

- launch the bug tracker interface
- get all the new bugs since last time I did some bug triage

unless you type your own SQL queries). With something integrated to
vi, a bit like an email interface, it would be much more pleasant.
Imagine that instead of svn, you would have to use a web interface to
commit, diff, log every revision. I think people would quickly become
