Now that Ondrej is working on getting continuous integration up for NumPy,  I would encourage him to take you up on that offer.   Can these machines run a Jenkins slave?   

Having periodic tests of Sage, Pandas, matplotlib, scipy, and other projects is a major priority and really critical before we can really talk about how to migrate the APIs.    Thankfully, Ondrej is available to help get this project started and working this summer.
