I tend to edit the docstrings as I edit the code, and most functions/
methods do have a proper docstring that follows the numpy standard.
There's definitely a lack of examples and see alsos, though...
I'm quite surprised to see that so many functions are not picked up
during the doc build.
Pauli, could you point me towards the part of the autosummary/autodoc
that lists the functions in a module ? Should I edit the docstring of
the module to organize the output (using ..autofunction / ..automethod
directives ? Is it legit to put sphinx directives/shortcuts in the
doc, or are we still trying to ensure compatibility with an extra
Scott, thanks a lot for your suggestion, it'd be easier indeed for me
to review stats.mstats functions docstrings than (re)write them.
