Thanks Inessa. I hope to see some user stories in particular from
stakeholder groups that we may not be thinking about yet. Our first focus
is probably something like: beginning user, advanced user, contributor.
Beyond that there's groups like educators and packagers that I hope we can
include specific content for soon. I'm sure we're still missing some
groups, would love to hear specific needs or previous
unsuccesfull/unsatisfactory attempts at engaging with NumPy.

Note that we're keeping track of these user stories in
