For everyone who said they’d like to contribute, but feel like their coding 
isn’t up to GSL standards: don’t worry!  This isn’t the Linux kernel, you won’t 
get called stupid for doing your best.  Patrick and the others are generally 
helpful and will help you to get your code included.  I think it would be a 
shame if potential improvements to GSL go undone because everyone has impostor 

I work almost exclusively in C++ and Python (and I’m a physicist!) and I was 
able to contribute a new 1D interpolation routine that will be in 2.0.  I 
looked at the existing code as a model and wrote the new routine accordingly.  
After submitting a patch I had to make some modifications to clean it up, but 
it was fine!
