A bit more than that:


To add to Gaël's statement, most of the Enthought Tool Suite (ETS) was
written by Enthought with notable contributions like Prabhu and Gaël's
work on Mayavi (which builds on the rest of the ETS). The Enthought
Python Distribution (EPD) is a binary distribution of Python and a
large number of third-party packages, most of which we didn't write.
