Ultimately, most of that list should be pushed down into the 
References (which are automagically generated from <ref></ref>), as 
those users' publications are linked from the text body above. The 
Python main page
is a good example.
Look at the sections it incorporates, and think of where published 
items could be added to Astropy - I think ==Use== and ==Impact== 
would be good to include, and professionals' entries included therein 
with <ref> tags.
