We really don't want to supply binaries for python 2.5 anymore?

(maybe this will get me to finally switch!

That's fast, I was hoping to get away with that one!

I discussed a bit with David, and he suggested to not make 2.5 binaries for scipy 0.7.2 and then see if there was still any demand. It's a lot of work with perhaps not so much return. Of course a maintenance release of scipy with no new features may be a different story from a new release of numpy/scipy. So by no means is this decided or even publicly discussed. I do want to point out that we have not provided 2.4 binaries for a while without much demand.

So now the question: who still wants and uses 2.5 binaries?

Cheers,
