[Numpy-discussion] A request for new distributions

I'm catching up with half a year of back postings on the numpy list, 
and the messages about automatically using vecLib on the macintosh 
sound very interesting.

I maintain the official Package Manager databases for MacPython (which 
allow users to install a handful of common packages with one 
mouseclick), and Numeric and numarray have been in there since day one. 
I'm revising all the packages again at the moment (I do that about once 
a year, or on request), and I had to manually fiddle Numeric 23.6 to 
actually build on the Mac. This is a bit of a bother, as I have to keep 
a separate source distribution in stead of just referring to the 
official one, but more important is the fact that neither Numeric nor 
numarray support vecLib out of the box.

So, a plea for help: I don't know what the usual frequency for Numeric 
and numarray distributions is, but it would be very helpful for me (and 
for anyone using Numeric/numarray on the Mac) if new distributions were 
available that contained the fixes mentioned in the november 
discussions...
