[SciPy-user] data analysis, chemomentrics, python and open software

A couple reactions.

1. What is the license?  On this list, you will arouse much
more interest if it is BSD.  (See the NumPy, SciPy, and
Matplotlib licenses.)

2. Reinventing the wheel ... it seems like much of what you
are discussing at the algorithmic level may be in SciPy or
might be fruitfully added to it.  Much of what you have in
mind seems to imply general purpose (rather than specifically
chemometric) code.

3. Decoupling the GUI: you did not make it clear, but the
current commitment to Qt (which seems fine given their new
license) should be kept entirely separate from the real
work (i.e., the numerical algorithms).

Best wishes,
Alan Isaac

PS Where is your Google Code repository?
