On a high level, we have the following focuses: - To support the community by providing developer time to do code review, triage issues, fix bugs, help with releases, implement infrastructure (e.g., improve benchmarking, inter-package testing, project analytics), etc. The first work done will be mainly in this category. - To solve medium- and large-scale issues through the design and implementation of community-approved NEPs. This might include items such as duck arrays, parameterized dtypes, and missing value support. - To provide logistical (and some financial) support for the organization of NumPy developer meetings, coding sprints, sabbaticals, technical talks, and similar community-building activities. We started with the recent NEP writing sprint; this is to be followed by an Airspeed Velocity sprint with Mike Droettboom at BIDS around mid-June, and a NumPy developer meeting at SciPy2018 on July 14–15. We would love community input on identifying the best areas & issues to pay attention to, and I invite developers who want to meet with the team at Berkeley to contact me.
