Moin,

>From time to time one of the statistics tests will fail.
Would it be reasonable/possible to automatically run those tests
a couple of times to reduce the chance of failing?

FAIL: check_normal (scipy.stats.morestats.test_morestats.test_anderson)

Not that this point is really worrying me a lot,
but it might confuse newcomers ...
