Thanks for the pointer, it looks like a great project, let's hope it
gets some traction.
A few thoughts that are NumPy related:
-- If nothing else, it's a pretty good list of stuff that "should" be
included in Stock NumPy (and/or the core of SciPy).
-- I notice they have:
Matrix Operations, like: Elementwise Addition, etc.
I don't, however, see any N-d array stuff: Too bad. (they do have
"Multi-Dimensional Arrays Of Matrices" listed under present additional
topics. Why array of matrices, rather than arrays of scalars?
-- I'm personally not thrilled with the linear-algebra focus: for
instance the matlab style for the operators:
* matrix multiply
.* elementwise addition.
I'd rather see it the other way around.
I wonder if we could get a Pythonista to join? In general,
unfortunately, it looks to be quite commercially-focused: how does one
get the open source community to be represented in this kind of thing?
