I'd like to propose moving the stsci package (which contains the
convolve and image sub-packages from numarray) into SciPy from the sandbox.
These packages duplicate some of the features available in other
packages and a better solution might be to merge the functionality into
However, this will take work and time. Right now, my main concern is
giving numarray users who depended on those packages an immediate
working mechanism for using them. The ndimage package is already in
SciPy. Creating an stsci package will allow numarray converts to
install scipy to get access to their familiar code.
Users not afraid of a compile could check-out just these packages and
install them. Users who rely on binary installations will want the
stsci package to get built and that means it needs to be in the main
