Feature freeze for Natty is February 24th, so if the timing is *just right* it
may be possible. Ideally, we'd get 0.9.0 into Debian right after scipy 0.9.0
is released, and then sync it to Ubuntu. I don't have permission to upload to
Debian, so we'd have to coordinate that between upstream (you guys), Debian
Python Modules Team <python-modules-team at lists.alioth.debian.org>, and
Ubuntu. If you remind me, I'll will try to facilitate that.
One question though: is 0.9.0 API and backward compatible with 0.8.0? I see
we have a couple of dozen reverse dependencies on python-scipy, so if there's
any chance that 0.9.0 would break those dependencies, we may have to push that
off until Natty+1. Here are a list of the reverse dependencies in Natty:
I can probably run a test build in a PPA for these packages, but the timing
will be tight.
