The problem is lack of help.  It would appear that I and Ed Schofield 
are being relied on to release SciPy and neither of us has found the 
time to do it in the past month.  There has been a large influx in the 
number of bug-reports and feature requests and I don't think anybody has 
been able to keep up.

My feeling is we should just release 0.5.2 now and deal with bug-reports 
later.  But, usually that means at least getting the tests to pass. 

In short, we need a release manager for SciPy.  Anybody willing to take 
up the task?
