He is defending his work shortly and should be available to continue to help with the 1.7.0 release around the first of December.    He and I have been in contact during this process, and I've been helping where I can.   Fortunately, other NumPy developers have been active closing tickets and reviewing pull requests which has helped the process substantially.

Also, the merging of the Trac issues with Git has exposed over-looked problems as well and will hopefully encourage more Git-focused participation by users.

I think most of the issues that I had as blockers have been resolved.    If there are no more remaining blockers, then we may be able to accelerate the final release of 1.7.0 to just after Thanksgiving.

I successfully defended my Ph.D. thesis last Thursday, I just need to
do some changes to it and submit it and I am done.
So I started to work on the release again (my apologies that it got
delayed, I had to devote my full attention to finishing my school

Here is a list of issues that need to be fixed before the release:


If anyone wants to help, we just need to get through them and submit a
PR for each, or close it if it doesn't apply anymore.
This is what I am doing now.
