I think debian has numpy now (I am not using debian on workstation
anymore, so I am not really following), but what about new versions of
numpy/scipy ? If I want to give some of my code to people in my lab who
do not use the same distribution than me, can I give a 10 minutes
instructions set to have everything ?
If you read the wiki for linux, you have all kind of information
distribution specific, which demands some knowledge about compiler and
co, etc... If opensuse build system works as I think it does, this would
be kind of helpful. Particularly the rebuilding of packages when one of
the dependency changed.
