Abstract: I introduce and describe progress on Astropy, a large, community effort to provide common astronomy/astrophysics utilities and promote reuse of software. It is based on a model of a collaborative open-source core package (currently under heavy development) and independent but affiliated packages contributed by individuals and organizations. I describe some of the features in the current core package, the organizational structure of the community, and the direction the project is headed in the near future.
