To be a bit more detailed here, these are the most significant pull
requests / patches that I think can be merged with a limited amount of work:
meshgrid enhancements: http://projects.scipy.org/numpy/ticket/966
sample_from function: https://github.com/numpy/numpy/pull/151
loadtable function: https://github.com/numpy/numpy/pull/143

Other maintenance things:
- un-deprecate putmask
- clean up causes of "DType strings 'O4' and 'O8' are deprecated..."
- fix failing einsum and polyfit tests
- update release notes


What do you all think?
