[Numpy-discussion] unit tests / developing numpy

To answer my own question in a clumsy way:

To run unit tests on a dev version of numpy: 

python setup.py build
python setup.py install --prefix=/tmp/numpy
export PYTHONPATH="/tmp/numpy/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/"


>>> import numpy
>>> print numpy.version.version
>>> numpy.test()

Adjust according to your version of python.
