Hi all,

I'm not sure if non-core-developers are allowed to post MEPs, but I just did ;). MEP 12 outlines the reorganization of the example gallery and subsequent clean up of the examples:

    https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib/wiki/MEP12

In my opinion, there are two open questions in the MEP:

    * Section names (may seem trivial to some, but I think it's really important)
    * Guidelines for cleaning up examples

I've added proposed section names and clean-up guidelines to the MEP, but I'm sure these will evolve over time.

Best,

Here here! I've been waiting for a really nasty, cold, and rainy weekend here in Portland to make some PRs at least cleaning up the code contained within the examples. Just hasn't happened yet ;)

 Tony, if you make your own branch for this, I'd be happy to contribute.

Awesome! I'm hoping we can quickly converge on some clean-up guidelines and section headings. 

I was envisioning a single PR that adds new gallery sections. After that examples would be updated over a long period of time in multiple PRs that change a few examples at a time. Do you think that all the work should be done on a parallel branch and merged in one big PR?

Best,
-Tony
