Please reply to the list rather than in private e-mail. Private e-mail
is likely to end up in a spam folder.  See more below.

I see three logical locations for patches:

1. Attach to the wiki page:
<http://projects.scipy.org/scipy/numpy/attachment/wiki/MaskedArray?action=new>.
2. Post to the list: <mailto:numpy-discussion at lists.sourceforge.net>.
3. Upload to sourceforge:
<http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_id=1369&atid=301369>.

I don't have any preference, but if you choose 1 or 3, please announce
the URL on the list.  Also it is best to post patches as an output tof
"svn diff".
