I apologize for the tone of my email Sheila. As I state in my nomination
that mistakes are mine alone. I wasn't present for the early days of ChiPy.
You were.

I interpreted your email incorrectly as a diminution of Brian's
contributions. I do encourage you to put forth with the PSF nominations of
others responsible for launching ChiPy. I think it's one of the most
important user groups in the world not just for Python but for open source
in general.

My comments didn't add to the efforts of the group or to foster respectful
and encouraging communication, and I apologize. Warmest wishes Sheila, Don
