[Numpy-discussion] .debs of numpy-0.9.8 available for Ubuntu Dapper

I've put together some .debs for numpy-0.9.8. There are binaries
compiled for amd64 and i386 architectures of Ubuntu Dapper, and I
suspect these will build from source for just about any Debian-based
distro and architecture.
The URL is http://sefton.astraw.com/ubuntu/dapper and you would add the
following lines to your /etc/apt/sources.list:
deb http://sefton.astraw.com/ubuntu/ dapper/
deb-src http://sefton.astraw.com/ubuntu/ dapper/
Although this is the culmination of my first serious attempt Debianizing
something, I've attempted to build these "properly" (using inspiration
from Matthias Klose's Numeric and numarray packages for Debian and
Ubuntu, although I've updated the build system to use CDBS).
The numpy source has a build dependency on setuptools (0.6b2), which is
also available at the repository. Numpy doesn't get installed as an
.egg, but it carries along .egg-info, which means that numpy can be part
of a setuptools dependency specification. This was done using the
--single-version-externally-managed command for setuptools.
I'm building this repository to serve some of my needs at work, and I
hope to add recent versions of several other projects including
matplotlib and scipy in the coming days. I hope to be able to keep the
repository up-to-date over time and to respond to bug reports and
questions, although the amount of time I have to devote to this sort of
stuff is unfortunately often near zero.
If I get some positive feedback, I'm likely to add this to the scipy.org
download page. Also, I hope the official Debian and Ubuntu distros pick
up numpy soon, and perhaps this will speed them along.
