I agree that there should not be any affect on the behaviour, though it 
introduces mismatch in tagged CVS repository and released binary and 
source files. I just hope that nobody will notice that when using scipy 
and upgrading scipy in future (the ../site-packages/moduleTNC.so will be 
there foreever..).

Anyway, I just tagged the CVS repository with tag v0_3_0. I have fixed 
several links in the new scipy.org (replaced .html->.txt where appropiate) 
and it looks like we are ready to send the release announcement out. Any 
takers for composing the announcement?

Few issues:
1) Need contents for
  http://www.scipy.org/development/maintainers.html
2) Top in scipy.org shows:

  PID USER     PRI  NI  SIZE  RSS SHARE STAT %CPU %MEM   TIME CPU COMMAND
  25930 zope    15   0  814M 218M  1664 S     0.0 34.7  66:42   0 python2.3

that is zope is taking lots of memory. Could this explain why the site is 
so slow? Maybe restarting zope would free some memory?

Pearu
