Hi Jarrod, hi everyone,

	Here are some things I would like to work/seen fixed on for 1.3:
		- fix VS 2003 compilation for mtrand.c (numpy is not buildable with VS
2003.2005.2008 ATM because of a compiler limitation)
		- clean umathmodule (work almost done in the clean_math branch, still
need some testing on windows and solaris before merging).

Something else I would like to see is integration of numscons into numpy
trunk ? I am not talking about making numscons the default build, just
about the availability of numscons with numpy sources (the main
rationale for this is my own convenience: tracking different numpy
version is just too much work for me, having it integrated in numpy svn
would be helpful).

cheers,

David
