This is just to follow up on a dead thread of mine a little while back.
I was asking about letters for Clint Whaley's tenure case, from numpy, but I realized that I don't know who 'numpy' is :)
Is there in fact a numpy steering group? Who is best to write letters representing the 'numpy community'?
At http://scipy.org/Developer_Zone there's a list of people under a big header "steering committee". It seems to me that writing such a letter representing the community is one of the purposes that committee could serve.
Ah - yes - thanks for the reply.
In the interests of general transparency - and given that no-one from that group has replied to this email - how should the group best be addressed? By personal email? That seems to break the open-source matra of everything on-list:
Having project-relevant *discussions* on-list doesn't preclude getting someone's *attention* off-list.
Yes, that's true. My worry was that, having put the question on the list, and not had an answer, it might send a bad signal if it was obvious that I had only got a reply because I'd asked for one off-list.
I can't speak for the rest of the group, but as for myself, if you would like to draft such a letter, I'm sure I will agree with its contents.
Thank you - sadly I am not confident in deserving your confidence, but I will do my best to say something sensible. Any objections to a public google doc? See you, Matthew
