Yeah! I just looked into the repo.. last commit was about a year ago!

As you said, it might be mandatory to create a design that looks like
scipy.org otherwise, people might feel to have landed on Mars.

Also, I see that SciPy Central doesn't have support for OpenID.. So,
considering my Django experience, with some help/ guidance I can do that!
We can possibly write from scratch or user some opensource projects which
have already done some homework.
