SciPy, based on feedback from users. I would make these changes myself,

published. If you would like me to make the changes (I'd be happy to),
I would need the status of the file changes, otherwise here are the
1. In the MacPython section:
Change "Jack Jensesn's" to "Jack Jansen's"
2. In the Gnuplot and Aquaterm section:
Change the fourth bullet to:
Copy include files using the command: cp -rf ./include
3. In the Building SciPy section:
The first paragraph should be (using structured text):
You may install SciPy either by checking them out from the CVS
repository (see "CVS documentation":http://www.scipy.org/cvs/ ) or from
a source archive file (see "Downloads":http://www.scipy.org/download/
). IF you chose the latter, you must make a minor change to the
setup.py file before installing. Open setup.py in a text editor and
ignore_packages = [
ignore_packages = [
That is, simply remove the comment characters from these lines. You can
then start the build process in the SciPy source directory as follows:
