SunPy Project

The SunPy project is the organization which maintains the SunPy library and sponsored affiliated packages. Its primary goal is to facilitate and promote the use and development of a community-led, free and open-source solar data-analysis software based on the scientific Python environment.

The organization is described in SEP-2, and consists of a board of directors, a lead developer appointed by the board, community roles and the sunpy and affiliated package developers. Anyone is welcome to participate in the SunPy organization. The purpose of the board is to lead the overall structure and direction of SunPy while the lead developer works with the developer community to implement it. The SunPy Board publicly posts the minutes from each board meeting.

People

In this section we list everyone with a specific role in the project, all the members of the development community are too numerous to list here. A list of anyone who contributed code to SunPy is available on Github contributors and for each major release we keep track of who contributed in-between releases.

Maintainers

The following section list the maintainers for the various sub-packages of the core library as well as the documentation maintainers.

Each area should have at least one but preferably two people identified. To enable mentorship the two maintainers could include a lead and a deputy or also two co-leads. Some roles are currently not filled. We’d like to encourage members of the community to inquire about volunteering.
