Hey,

maybe it is a bit early, but I was wondering. What are the things that
should be done before branching? Most of the blockers should be
resolved? I think the largest of that are maybe the deprecations (but
since 1.7.0 is not too long ago many of them maybe don't need touching).
Aside from that, I think these are lurking/in-progress:

Fix the piled up mapping.c things:
    * This means resolving https://github.com/numpy/numpy/pull/436 .
      It will be even worse now, but maybe at least most of it can
      be put in without too much work?
    * After that, non-integer deprecations should be done fully before
      1.8. I think, but these need to change mapping.c too (the
      most work is probably the tests...):
        - https://github.com/numpy/numpy/pull/2891
        - https://github.com/numpy/numpy/pull/2825
    * (https://github.com/numpy/numpy/pull/2701)
 
Are the 2to3 fixers supposed to be finished for 1.8? If yes there is
probably no point in thinking about branching, etc. since back porting
them all is just pain.

Regards,

Sebastian
