Is 24.0 still around for download somewhere?  I used an old archive of 
24.0b2 I had lying around, but didn't see Numeric 24 on Sourceforge, 
either as a download or from CVS.

It gets worse, because it turns out that the Ubuntu numeric packagers 
have broken it up into python-numeric, python2.4-numeric, and 
python2.4-numeric-ext.  John Hunter, are you out there?  I know you use 
Ubuntu;  are you just using old scipy until you get a chance to port 
matplotlib to new core?

Followups redirected to scipy-user, since IMHO this is no longer a 
scipy-dev discussion.
