If you call it scipystack, please put Sympy and nose in as well - a long
and heated discussion last year settled on a core set of packages that
distributions describing themselves as shipping the Scipy Stack should


As for packaging systems, I'd lean towards conda - it seems more in line
with our Jupyter-ish idea of cross-language tools for scientific computing.
Also, while pip can now handle wheels, you can't put wheels for Linux on
PyPI, so installing extension modules into a docker container with pip is
still not very practical.
