Good to hear from you. We always appreciate help, especially if it comes
with some experience :) It would also be helpful if you reviewed the NEPs
dealing with dtypes. We don't get as much feedback from users as we would
like and if you are using a lot of the open source tools your perspective
could be very helpful. Keep us informed, and maybe toss around some ideas
for discussion. We have community meetings on zoom every Wednesday at 12:00
noon Pacific time, so you may want to drop in if the time works for you.
