#1368: numpy.ma sort method sorts in-place but dosctring says it returns a sorted
copy

     Type:  defect    |      Status:  new     
 Priority:  normal    |   Milestone:          
Component:  numpy.ma  |     Version:  1.4.0   
 Keywords:  sort      |  
----------------------+-----------------------------------------------------
 The dosctring to the sort method in numpy.ma says "Return a sorted copy of
 an array," the same behavior as the numpy sort method.  However, the
 numpy.ma sort method sorts arrays in-place, unlike the numpy sort method
 and in contradiction to the documentation.  The code should be changed to
 match the numpy code, or the docstring should be changed to accurately
 reflect the behavior.
