Hi,

    A few days ago, the idea of scikits popped for codes which depends 
on LICENSE different than BSD-like. My understanding is that the idea 
popped up sometime before, but nothing was done for various reasons. 
There is code *now* which I can give for scikits, which may be 
interesting for signal processing people, pyaudio and pysamplerate:

    I developed those packages because I need them right now, but if 
they are to become of some use for other people as well, it would make 
it easier for me to have a public place with a source control system and 
the likes to put those packages. So:

    - Is launching scikits now possible ?
    - If not, what needs to be done (besides finding a name ?)
    - R. Kern suggested a layout of the packages, which I am copying 
below. Do people have suggestions about the layout ?

trunk/
   pkg1/
     README
     setup.py
     sciwhatever/
       __init__.py
       pkg1/
         __init__.py
         audiostuff.py
   pkg2/
     README
     setup.py
     sciwhatever/
       __init__.py
       pkg2/
         __init__.py
         eigenstuff.py

	Cheers, 

	David
