 From the silent majority who lurk here, many thanks to you Fernando for 
setting this up (and for IPython).  It is wonderful to know that the 
concerns and achievements of scientific computing in Python are on the 
radar of the group of people responsible for leading the language.  If 
you have thoughts on how the wider community can contribute to this sort 
of communication in the future, please share.
