Friedrich, you can't just install 10.5 (non server) on vmware. I just

This now lives under tools/numpy-macosx-installer in the git repo, so that
is not an external dependency anymore.

Probably not. The master branch is not binary compatible with scipy. But
1.5.1rc1 is planned for this coming Sunday, so that would be useful to have
a 10.5 binary of.

And how about a numpy scipy combo dmg?

Not sure if that's a very good way to spend your time, what's wrong with
separate installers? The release cycles are not synchronized, so this would
just be extra work.

It does, just go to Waterfall display, then click one of the "stdio" links
to see test results.

Cheers,
