Well, nothing is done yet, so I am not sure if this can be called news

I don't know if this has changed with the whole license discussion from
a few days ago, but originally, any open source license was acceptable
for scikits, which is the convention I am still following.
Still, if possible, it is better to have BSD license if possible,
because it makes it possible to include code from scikits into scipy.

I have not thought about it. I am still not satisfied with the current
situation of the scikits, to be frank, but I am not sure I have any
solution to it either. Hopefully, we will be able to discuss about that
in the next few months (there is a plan to do a numpy/scipy sprint, +
some work on ML-related code after ICASSP)
