-SciPy Toolkits are independent and seperately installable projects hosted under a common namespace. Packages that are distributed in this way are here (instead of in monolithic SciPy) for at least one of three general reasons. Each of these reasons use the same high-level namespace (scikits).
+SciKits (short for SciPy Toolkits), are add-on packages for <a href="http://www.scipy.org">SciPy</a>, hosted and developed separately from the main SciPy distribution.

It is generally the responsibility of the package writer to push for inclusion into SciPy if that is the desire. However, some packages may be moved into SciPy by other interested SciPy developers after approval by the SciPy steering committee.
