Please refer to your(!) message "Report from SciPy" dated 2008-08-23:
Robert K, Chuck H, Stefan VdW, Jarrod M, David C, and I had a nice
discussion about the future directions of NumPy. We resolved some
things and would like community feedback on them if there are opinions.
* we will be moving to time-based releases (at least 2 times a year --
November / May) with major changes not accepted about 4 weeks before the
* The releases will be numbered major.minor.bugfix
* There will be no ABI changes in minor releases
* There will be no API changes in bugfix releases

enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as
though it had an underlying truth."
