Ashwin, I don't know your background but perhaps it is similar to mine. I use numpy extensively in my day job and starting contributing to numpy a few months ago. From using numpy, I found some things that I thought should be added/improved. I researched them and the associated numpy code enough to be confident I would be capable of making the change (some of the C code is intense). Before I got too far along, I posted an issue and got feedback from the experts. Then I did it.
