Fantastic! We really need these efforts.

One small remark: could we have a visual style, and marketting that
clearly shows on a first look that the is part of the scipy ecosystem?
We need to establish the community and the brand. We also need to make it
easier for people to figure out what packages go with what.

By visual style, or branding, I have something really light in mind, eg a
logo.
