I would like to assist on the website. Although I have not made any code

to hold my breath until the end of my wind tunnel test campaign mid

And I do like the sound of the gihub workflow as currently done by the
ipython team.

Does it need to be a new repo, or would permissions on https://github.com/numpy/numpy.scipy.org work as well?

Yes it would. I've taken Fernando's suggestion and created a github team "Scipy web team" and given you push-pull permissions for https://github.com/scipy/scipy.org-new Scott.

David, once you make a few pull requests please ping us, and we can give you permissions too.
