Hi all, here's an update on the decision on who will attend this event to
represent NumPy. Allan Haldane and Stefan van der Walt are the two people
going. Given that this is more a governance/sustainability/funding type
rather than a technical event (even though there's also an opportunity to
sprint), it made sense to choose people who have been working on NumPy for
at least a couple of years (or much longer, in Stefan's case).
