I am sorry if I offended you. I do not call every software that does not
on pypi crappy. I also don't call numpy crappy.
Now, please tell me what you would do if sourceforge changes its url and
404 on the old download page. Would you update all release informations?
If not, the next time I run a buildout where the configuration requires
numpy in an old version
and the download link is broken, my buildout breaks too. And there might be
I stick to a specific older version.
Thats what I would like to avoid.
