FYI, I noticed this package that claimed to be maintained by us: https://pypi.org/project/numpy-aarch64/. That's not ours, so I tried to contact the author (no email provided, but guessed the same username on GitHub) and asked to remove it: https://github.com/tomasriv/DNA_Sequence/issues/1.
There are a very large number of packages with "numpy" in the name on PyPI, and there's no way we can audit/police that effectively, but if it's a rebuild that pretends like it's official then I think it's worth doing something about. It could contain malicious code for all we know.
That is a pretty misleading package description, would have fooled me if I didn't know better. I didn't get the impression it was malicious, but still . . .
