Just to clarify (for all you lurkers on the list), this means we are 
considering changing the officially recommended way of citing the ET 
from citing the paper to citing the software (i.e. creating a Zenodo DOI 
for each release).

There are a number of reasons to do things this way, but at its heart it 
is a sustainability issue. For software to be sustainable, people must 
want to work on it. The inability of any new person to receive credit 
for their contributions to a software project is a de-motivator.

Hopefully, at some point before July 12, when we decide whether to 
officially make this change, Dan Katz will join the call to make a 
presentation on his research in this area.
