I'm the maintainer for python-matplotlib in Fedora Extras.
Thanks for doing that, by the way.
> Is numpy fully functional
I think not quite, and it does change a bit with each release.
the way of the future
Yes, it is the way of the future, but the future is not quite now.
I have python-numeric as the required engine at runtime.
Just make it clear:
1) The binary is build so that it will work with all three
2) The question is what is defined as a dependency when you install it, and what is set as default in matplotlibrc.
If so, I'd stick with Numeric as the default. Those of us on the Bleeding Edge of Numpy can still use it, but people's older code should "just work"
As a rule of thumb, I'd wait until Travis calls numpy version 1.0 before changing the default.
