As you may know already from our previous dev meetings, I am on the
steering committee of a new project to better coordinate the
scientific Python ecosystem through a mechanism called the Scientific
Python Ecosystem Coordination (SPEC) process:
We've already recruited a SPEC steering committee:
And we are now recruiting Core Projects:
Matplotlib is currently listed as a Core Project with draft status.
Before the SciPy conference in July, we would like to list Matplotlib
as a Core Project (i.e., with the draft notice removed).
Being a Core Project requires that we endorse SPEC documents that we
support, but this is entirely opt-in, and so far the proposals are
something we're interested in anyway.
I will put this on the meeting agenda for tomorrow to discuss. We
would like to put this in by June 9th, which gives us a few weeks, but
I don't think this will be controversial.
