I just voted on the poll, but i think the issue of whether package will be in epd free or not is kinda orthogonal to this discussion. I realize that having all the 'standard' packages in epd free would be an awesome thing but isn't that a business decision enthought needs to make. Epd is not the only way to get packages installed, but it is a very convenient one and if enthought wants to make epd free with a more limited subset of packages and have the full licensed epd be the standard compliant version, I don't see anything really wrong with that. After all they are providing a value added service by doing the cross platform packaging.

Discussion on the numfocus list has come to the conclusion that we
should either specify both h5py and PyTables, or neither. Please
register your opinion on this new poll:

To be clear, I'm using all these polls to gauge what a larger number
of people think. It's like Wikipedia's "!voting" model - the option
with the most votes doesn't automatically win, but it's used to form a
