Note for packagers:
This release pins setuptools-scm to be <7. This is due to an incompatibility with setuptools-scm-git-archive. However, the release is compatible with setuptools-scm 7 and you may remove the pin if you wish, but you should also remove the setuptools-scm-git-archive depenency as well. Please see the following PR for further details and a patch: Remove setuptools_scm_git_archive dependency and add sdist test by oscargus · Pull Request #23387 · matplotlib/matplotlib · GitHub
