Re: [Python-modules-team] numpy 1.6.1 into unstable?

Hello Yaroslav,
such questions are better asked on debian-python: few people reads the
pkging ml (cc added).

I think it's time to move it to unstable, yes; the numpy transition
(#658289) was closed some days ago, so we're clear to go.

I planned to ask yesterday Jakub for support/opinion in the
transition, but didn't see him in IRC, adding CC now: Jakub, what do
you think about uploading new Numpy to unstable?

There is (to my knowledge) one bug 659403 (nipy) that would become RC,
while 659409 (veusz) is fixed but not yet migrated into testing due to
RC bug.

Given the work done by Jakub, this new numpy shouldn't generated a
transition per se (it just bump the API version, not the ABI, which
most of the packages use) so it would be the first smooth transition:
let's see how it goes :)
