I used to have access, but my password seems to have lapsed. There are
a few cleanups and comments I could make to those small parts of Scipy
I contributed. I also extended the sort functions in numarray and might
look into porting them to the new core.

I don't read it regularly -- I read email much more.  So make sure to 
post an  announcement to this list.  Also, I have been pre-occupied with 
the new core system.  Also, the move to svn put a big delay on placing 
any fixes into scipy as several people lost write access.  So, don't be 
discouraged.  There have been some growing pains this summer.

We also need more people who are willing to have write access to the 
actual source tree.  

Any takers?  (I won't just let anybody make changes, but if you've 
already contributed to SciPy in some fashion, you are a likely candidate...)
