blog/draft/numpy-status-update-6.rst

 ----------------------
 
 Hello.
-Over the past two months we have made progress, and would like to request your help.
+
+This is the last two months update of the activities on the NumPyPy project.
 
 First the update:
+
 * **dtype support** - NumPy on PyPy now supports all the numeric dtypes in numpy,
   including non-native storage formats, longdouble, clongdouble and friends.
 
 
 * **pickling support for numarray** - hasn't started yet, but next on the list
 
-More importantly, we're getting very close to be able to import the python part
-of the original numpy with only import modifications, and running its tests.
-Most tests will fail at this point, however it'll be a good start for another
-chapter :-)
+* There has been some work on exposing FFT routines into numpypy.
 
+More importantly, we're closing on being able to run the pure-python part of
+numpy without modifications. This is not getting us close to passing all
+the tests, but it's a good start.
 
-Numpy in pypy could use your help, in spite of the generous donations we have not been
-able to move forward as fast as we wish. Please
-get involved by trying it out, picking a feature that you would love to have, and
-helping us get that feature implemented.
+The most important part is the funding. While we managed to get a significant
+amount of money in donations, we only managed to spend around $10 000 from it
+so far. XXX
 
 Cheers,
-Matti Picus
