Hi, we do have a potential mentor for this project, Sebastián Ventura.
Since he's not yet active in the Scipy community, I'll briefly introduce
him. Sebastian is an experienced web developer, and has participated before
in GSoC both as a student and a mentor. We came into contact via the PSF
(our GSoC umbrella org), to which he had indicated that he was available as
a mentor for Python GSoC projects. Once he has signed up for this mailing
list - which may take a day or two because scipy.org is unresponsive right
now - he'll join the discussion.

Cheers,
Ralf
