So can this be changed? It seems to make things more precise, but since the
license is quite important I don't want to change it without an explicit OK
from an authoritative voice (steering committee member).

Proposed diff:

-  c. Neither the name of the Enthought nor the names of its contributors
-     may be used to endorse or promote products derived from this software
+  c. The names of Enthought, the SciPy Developers or any contributors may
+     not be used to endorse or promote products derived from this software
      without specific prior written permission.
