Thanks, Fernando. I think the next step is to start reworking the
'new' scipy.org website (http://scipy.github.com/ ) to focus on the
stack, rather than scipy-the-package. I've just kicked that off with a
pull request replacing the 'download' page with an 'install' page:

https://github.com/scipy/scipy.org-new/pull/3

I'd like to invite anyone with an interest in this (and I know there
are a lot of you) to get involved with the website. A few of the
things we'll need:

- Update the front page to promote the Scipy stack we've agreed on:
adding Pandas & Sympy, rearranging the current distinction of 'core
projects' vs. 'related projects'.
- A page describing the Scipy stack specification.
- A new separate page (or pages) about scipy-the-package.
- Some general design work wouldn't go amiss - do we need the
breadcrumb bar? Can we improve top level navigation?

Best wishes,
Thomas
