Hi all,

I should have done this prior, but better late than never.. :)

I just wanted to introduce Imelda, who contacted us a few days ago and volu

I hope this will nteered her time and skills to help out IPython.
 Yesterday met at Berkeley with the local part of the team as well as Katy
Huff from Scipy.

Imelda volunteered to help the project with writing from a different
perspective than what we typically write: not technical docs but
business/project analysis.  That's a skill set different from our typical
one, so I'm happy to see where this experiment can take us.

We decided a good starting point could be for her to take the view of a
business analyst and look at what the project looks like *from the
outside*, without much detailed guidance from us at all. I'm sure that will
be a sobering diagnostic of some of our limitations in terms of docs,
project presentation, website, etc.
