I am also looking for ways to contribute to Scipy. I have experience
with Python, C/C++ and limited experience with the Numpy C API. In
particular, I have some code implementing the kernel density estimator
bandwidth selection algorithm from the following paper:

Z. I. Botev, J. F. Grotowski, and D. P. Kroese. Kernel density
estimation via diffusion. The Annals of Statistics, 38(5):2916–2957,

That method is more resilient to multi-modal data than the standard
plug-in estimators. I would love to add that method to the current
SciPy stats package if there is interest.
