I believe you. Time is the matter.

Well, since I am still a Python beginner somehow and still need to know how to
use it efficiently for my data analysis I will not really be able to contribute
to core.
At my current state of py knowledge I can alredy write my own simple modules
consisting of functions that I find useful.

Some things I can imagine are the following:
create a tools directory under the timeseries tree. then there we could place
things like
* common frequency conversions: reduce to hourly values
* error checking of measurement data: statistically and logically

Is it safe for me to replace/patch my current maskarray?

I have experience in compiling on linux but have
to work on a windows box.
Therefore an advice on that would be useful.

Is there a possibility to subscibe to SVN to get an email on chnages?

Thanks for your responses.
