[Numpy-discussion] On making Numpy 1.7 a long term support release.

Hi All,

In the discussion on deprecating old macros in 1.7 as part of pull request
189 <https://github.com/numpy/numpy/pull/189>  the issue of how to move
numpy forward and start clearing the decks of accumulated cruft arose. The
proposal here is to make the 1.7 a long term support release that we
support with bug fixes for the next 2-3 years, and start removing stuff in
1.8 and bump the Python version up to 2.6 (2.7?). The 1.7 release has NA,
datetime, and einsum, and I think that is enough to keep folks happy for a
while. I don't know what other major features might be on the horizon
(labeled arrays?), but 1.7 looks like a good resting place to me.

Thoughts?

Chuck
