OK, a clean svn check-out and python setup.py install I get another
interesting import error:

[gsever@ccn ~]$ pwd
/home/gsever
[gsever@ccn ~]$ python
Python 2.6 (r26:66714, Jun  8 2009, 16:07:26)
[GCC 4.4.0 20090506 (Red Hat 4.4.0-4)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import numpy
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/home/gsever/Desktop/python-repo/numpy/numpy/__init__.py", line 123,
in <module>
    raise ImportError(msg)
ImportError: Error importing numpy: you should not try to import numpy from
        its source directory; please exit the numpy source tree, and
relaunch
        your python intepreter from there.
>>>

I launch the interpreter from a different directory than where the sources
located, however it still complains.

For the develop, it is one of easiest ways to catch up the bug-fixes even
though I don't work on the source directly. So far besides a few glitches it
was always working. I also install scipy, ipython, matplotlib, sympy and all
other available packages using develop. Keep the checkouts in the directory
on my desktop and if/when necessary do svn up or whichever command it
corresponds to their respective vcs. I wonder how other people keep up the
changes easily without using develop option.
