Employer support of Matplotlib work

Folks,

Does anyone have dedicated time or explicit permission to work on
Matplotlib as part of your employment (I have 10%)?

Feel free to respond to just me if you are not comfortable posting this
publicly.

I'm considering asking my employer about this since matplotlib is so
fundamental to what we do. I'm a software engineer for a Earth science
department at a University, and we're huge users of matplotlib (well - the
researchers are - but my job description is to help them write code and
maintain software tools used by the dept.

I would love to have proper 'work hours' to devote to something like
matplotlib, so I'm interested in seeing where this thread goes.

Hi Tom,

yes, I have explicit permission without a dedicated time percentage. I will
now make an effort to make that a non-zero percentage.

best,

I have explicit permission to submit patches for bugs I discover in any
open-source project I use in the course of doing my work. My employer would
rather to have the patches upstream than manage them ourselves. They also
encourage me to actively participate in the SciPy community. No dedicated
work-level percentage though.

I have an academic job, and 20% is expected to be ?service?, which helping w/ matplotlib would be considered a part of. Of course I?d never get away with claiming it was the whole 20% (supposed to include internal service, and academic service), but if I were to assign 5% to it, they?d be OK w/ that. The rest is voluntary.

Cheers, Jody
