FWIW, I personally like the fact that other 'scipy ecosystem' packages
can and are discussed here, since it means I learn a lot without
having to track yet another separate mailing list.

I really appreciate your tact and courtesy in trying to not 'pollute'
the scipy lists with material that you feel may be somewhat off-topic.
 But I think that, given how all of us have become pretty good at just
ignoring threads we aren't keeping track of directly, in general you
would not find too much push-back from this list.

So at least from me, +1 for you guys keeping your discussions here,
where I might actually learn something  :)

Best regards,
