Since you are packaging numpy docs for debian, and I think numpy is
using a variant of the mpl sphinxext plot directive to generate some
plots, I will give you a head's up on a recent change Michael just
made to the plot directive to fix a problem with the very large size
the mpl debian doc build.  The inclusion of the high res png and pdf
in images generated by the plot directive makes the resultant build
very large.  Obviously we will be generating a lot more plots than
numpy, but you may want to consider upgrading to the the plot
directive from the mpl release, which has a "smalldocs"
options (build the docs with --small) and only the regular resolution
PNG will be generated (no PDF, no hires).  This allows us to build the
full version for the mpl site and debian to build the small version if
they want.
