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.
