[SciPy-User] wrong prerequisites statements on scipy.org

Hi,

http://www.scipy.org would state clearly which versions of python are 
supported by numpy and scipy.

The front page says nothing about that and the faq statements are wrong:
http://www.scipy.org/FAQ states that

"NumPy requires the following software installed:

1. Python <http://www.python.org> 2.4.x or 2.5.x"

This documentation issue is a big one when you try to ask people to 
switch to numpy/scipy.

BTW, which version are supported? 2.6 and 2.7 for sure. 3.X works but is 
it official?
2.4 or 2.5... I don't know. Ok it is easy to figure it out but the 
documentation should IMHO state that on its front page.

Xavier
