Hi Ralf,

Thank you for the acknowledgement. I am happy to contribute and hope to continue to do so in the future.

Subject: [Numpy-discussion] NumPy team update

Hi all,

The NumPy team is growing, and it's awesome to see everything that is going on. Hard to keep up with, but that's a good thing! I think it's a good time for an update on people who gained commit rights, or joined one of the teams we now have.

For those who haven't seen it yet, we have a team gallery at https://numpy.org/gallery/team.html. It isn't yet updated for the changes in this email, but gives a good picture of the current state.

Matti Picus joined the Steering Council. He has been one of the driving forces behind NumPy for well over two years now, and we're very glad to have him join the council.

Ross Barnowski, Melissa Weber Mendonça, Josh Wilson and Bas van Beek gained commit rights. Ross has worked on the docs and reviewed lots of doc PRs for the last six months.  Melissa has led the doc structuring and tutorial writing effort and has done a good amount of f2py maintenance as well. Josh and Bas have been pushing the type annotation work forward, first in the numpy-stubs repo and now in master. It's great to have experts in all these topics join the team.

Furthermore, we now have 10+ people in the community calls, the triage calls and the docs team calls (all bi-weekly and on the NumPy community calendar [1] - everyone is welcome). And there's more going on - I feel like I should mention some of the other excellent work going on:

A lot of work is going into SIMD optimizations. Sayed Adel has made very nice progress on implementing universal intrinsics (NEP 38), and Raghuveer Devulapalli, Chunlin Fang and others have contributed SSE/AVX and ARM Neon implementations for many functions.

For the website, Shaloo Shalini has continued working on new case studies, we're about to merge a really nice one on tracking animal movement. Ben Nathanson has contributed his technical writing and editing skills to improve our website and documentation content. And Isabela Presedo-Floyd has taken up the challenge of redesigning the NumPy logo, and we're nearing the end of the process there.

The survey team has also been working hard. Inessa Pawson, Xiaoyi Deng, Stephanie Mendoza, Ross Barnowski, Sebastian Berg and a number of volunteers for translations are getting a really well-designed survey together.

And then of course there's both old hands and new people doing the regular maintenance and enhancement work on the main repo.

Writing this email started with "we just gave out some commit rights, we should put that on the mailing list". Then I realized there's lots of other people and activities that deserve a shout out. And probably more that I forgot (if so, apologies!). I'll stop here - thanks everyone for all you do!
