The version of the numpy website now at http://numpy.github.com no
longer points to the misleading and outdated new.scipy.org (an updated
version of that site is at http://scipy.github.com).

I think that numpy.scipy.org should be redirected to numpy.github.com
as outlined at pages.github.com (see section on Custom Domains), and
that it should happen sooner rather than later. Unfortunately I have
no idea who has access to the DNS records (Ognen Duzlevski @
Enthought?).

This change would remove one of the ways that people are currently
directed to new.scipy.org.

Cheers,
Scott
