I have uploaded the NumPy 1.7.0 source distribution to pypi:
I did it by uploading the file PKG-INFO from numpy-1.7.0.tar.gz. It said "Error processing form. Form Failure; reset form submission" about 3x times, but on the 4th try it went through. I reported the issue here:
I then attached the numpy-1.7.0.tar.gz and numpy-1.7.0.zip source files.
Now I am having trouble attaching the windows installers, just like they are here:
Those installers are ones built through bdist_wininst. You should *not* upload superpack installers there, as most python tools will not know what to do with it. For example, easy_install will not work with those, even though it does with simple installers from bdist_wininst.
So ideally, one should build simple (== bdist_wininst-generated) installers using the lowest common denominator for architecture (i.e. pure blas/lapack, not atlas), and the superpack installer on sourceforge. Incidentally, that's why the super pack installer uses a different filename, to avoid confusion.
