Well, the current calculation is obviously not correct (I have never seen a calculation of angular momentum that wasn’t r x p). 

Is there a way to efficiently notify a lot of users who may be using master besides emailing yt-users? That seems fine to me.

Hi all,

Bili put in a PR to reverse the orientation of yt's default angular momentum vector to be closer to what most people expect given conventions about right handed coordinate systems.

I'm a little nervous about merging this since it might be disruptive. Does anyone see any issues with merging? People on master branch should know what they're in for?

If no one responds here or comments in the PR I'll probably merge the PR next week.
