Changed to the last suggestion.

This is to prevent @user notifications from occurring during testing.
I'll switch it to an actual "@" when it's time to do the actual

It appears that github markup requires indented blocks to be separated
by an empty line.  Fixed.  See:

I think this has been fixed in the latest code (but not all issues
have used that for importing).  See:

Fixed. https://github.com/thouis/numpy-trac-migration/issues/3788

The plan is to keep these around indefinitely (possibly as a
snapshot).  If they are moved in the future, automatic rewriting
should be possible.

Like this? https://github.com/thouis/numpy-trac-migration/issues/3792
