I started working on adding scipy.datasets
submodule and reviving the discussion around the deprecation of scipy.misc
earlier this year with Ralf's help. Both the PRs are ready for review, and I'd request maintainers to have a look at them and share their thoughts on Github. SciPy Datasets are implemented using pooch
, but the PR doesn't add pooch as a new dependency as discussed.
One thing to be done, fairly easy to address, is to move the datasets with separate repos into the SciPy org and update the links
in the registry file. Currently, all of these are under https://github.com/scipy-datasets
. Some follow-ups will include getting rid of the dataset files from the SciPy repo completely once the PR is approved and merged.
Just wanted to bring up the updates on the mailing list. Please let me know if you have any kind of feedback on Github. Thanks!
