Any chance we can get express review for this pull request:
It makes the travis and appveyor tests pass on master and fixes issues
related to numpy 1.14.
I was thinking about putting in a few project ideas for yt with either the
OpenAstronomy or NumFOCUS google summer of code orgs.
Would anyone else be interested in mentoring a google summer of code
student this summer? To do so you will need to come up with a project idea
in the following format:
a) a project title
b) more detailed description of the project (2-5 sentences)
c) expected outcomes
d) skills required/preferred
e) possible mentors. And if possible, an easy, medium or hard rating of
(from the google summer of code mentor's guide
which includes a number of other suggestions for appropriately scoping a
summer of code project idea)
The due date for summer of code orgs is January 26th. Ideally I'd like to
contact the org we're working with a few weeks before that.
In the past we've had trouble attracting students so we need to be careful
to appropriately scope projects while still making them seem interesting.
We should also decide which org to work with. We went with OpenAstronomy in
the past but I think it makes sense to associate with NumFOCUS this year
given our efforts to expose yt to fields outside of astrophysics.
