As discussed in today's community meeting, I plan to start working on adding some useful functions to NumPy which are part of the array API standard https://data-apis.org/array-api/latest/index.html.
Although these are all things that will be needed for NumPy to be standard compliant, my focus for now at least is going to be on new functionality that is useful for NumPy independent of the standard. The things that I (and possibly others) plan on working on are:
Generally, I don't have much opinion on these, most seem fine to me. The pure aliases/shortforms, I feel should maybe be discussed separately.
- `np.linalg.matrix_transpose` (basically an alias/replacement for `np.linalg.transpose). (No strong opinion from me, the name is a bit clearer.)
A correction on this for completeness: this is not correct, `np.linalg.transpose` does not exist, there is only a *private* `np.linalg.linalg.transpose` function. So this adds a new public function - one that has been pointed out previously as missing and important to add, but somehow no one got around to actually doing that.
