If the traffic from the top 10 contributors is representative, then
debian-science has taken off. I think this is a good thing. Hopefully
the range of contributors has also broadened.

What is also noticable is the remarkable increase in activity.

And you have suceeded. There has been a remarkable increase in the
number of posts in 2008 compared to 2007. Hopefully there has also
been an increase in the number of contributors too.

My hope is that the list remains vibrant, and continues to enjoy a
friendly and constructive level of discussion. I also hope that it
will enjoy a broader audience and facilitate an improvement in the
range, quality and documentation of science packages in Debian.
