At the end of the datarray sprint we released datarray 0.0.3:

download: http://pypi.python.org/pypi/datarray
doc: http://fperez.github.com/datarray-doc

We did two things:

- Put datarray in standard package form (added setup.py, license,
directory structure, etc)
- Bug fixes

What we did not do:

- Communicate well with those we invited to join us through IRC. I apologize.

Going forward we would like to:

- Move the repo from Fernando's personal github account to a datarray
account. But we do not know a way to move a github repo along with all
its meta data (fork queue, issue tracker etc).
- Merge the work that has already been done by others.

Going forward, if pull requests contained a single issue (we did not
discuss this, just my guess) it would be easier to merge. Now that we
have an issue tracker, opening an issue helps too.
